As mentioned by others in the thread, doing it as a distribution of
binaries will lead to a lot of problems. Having it as a documentation,
however, makes a lot of sense to me. It was a bit the idea of
but also of http://blends.alioth.debian.org/accessibility/tasks/ , which
gathers the lists of packages available in Debian. The meta-data behind
that webpage can make the distinction between hard requirements (e.g.
brltty for braille support) and soft requirements (e.g. bmc for braille
music conversion), so we could work out from it a list of packages that
distributions out to have to be at least minimally accessible.
