Hi Rainer,

well, I didn't know that there were developers focused on specific components; in this case adding an "accessibility component" won't be the best thing to do, in my opinion…

> At this point I think we could go for solution C or solution A; in case of solution A, would it be possible to view all issues with the pseudo-keyword "accessibility"?

However I think that solution C could be very suitable; in drupal, for instance, to report accessibility issues there are two special tags:
- Accessibility: it means that this is an accessibility issue (it could be a bug, a feature request, a task, etc etc) ;
- "needs accessibility review": this means that the issue or the patch to solve it needs to be tested by a blind user or an accessibility expert.

Now we could choose to use only the "accessibility" keyword or maybe both "accessibility" and "needs accessibility review", I don't know; but also using just the first keyword would be a great thing…

So it always would be replaced during the bug triaging and fixing process.
