Sure, imho all desktops were not created equal when it comes to accessibility.

The fact that Mate is the first to go to says a lot about the ease of navigating its controls to select applications, getting to the desktop, launching the default Caja file manager etc.

These are the things that define accessibility and some desktops are not able to do that. I am also thinking of the ability to check on the computer status such as the battery, network connectivity and so forth.

Good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly, while bad people will find a way around the laws.
