I beg to differ. ;-)

The real problem IMHO is the lack of "power" of the a11y team/community
with respect to the full GNOME community. 

* I think we need more visibility (if not an actual presence) on the 
  GNOME Advisory Board. This is something we're working on.

* I think we need a seat on the GNOME Release Team. To my knowledge, 
  this is not being worked on.

* I think we need more, and relatively permanent, resources.

Regarding this:

I would, for the most part, agree. But that's how it's always been. For
the past few years anyway....

It's one thing for a group to say "accessibility is a critical
component"; quite another to demonstrate that it really is. (Not just
limited to GNOME....)
