It is different, in that the custom distributions are meant for
particular use cases, e.g. music, physician, children, etc.  Support for
accessibility is however something entirely orthogonal to that, and all
those custom distributions actually should be accessible: blind
musician, blind physician, blind child, etc.

I agree that having a specialized distro to ship the latest
accessibility improvements for testing etc. makes sense.  But on the
broad sense, it shouldn't be that way.
