Well, I think think that most bugs will be about that accessibility does
not work at all or that it does not work for some particular UI
elements. I think that most bugs will affect all LO applications and
will be in the shared code => the component would be fine after all.

I would imagine that we get an expert interested for these bugs.

Interesting idea; Well, it does not solve the problem when people report
bugs directly into bugzilla.

After all, my preference is: d a b c

d - is easiest for implementing and also for using by disabled users;
    it would work well
a - is natural; people would mention this word anyway in the summary
b - we use whiteboard in many other situations already
c - keywords are not much used these days => non-standard solution
