Separate implementations for Accessibility is not an answer, that is not how we
or any application supports a11y. Instead we provide framework for effective
keyboard navigation and then attach accessible events across the UI. The
integrated accessible events for components of the Notebookbar are missing.

Sure and keyboard navigation on the Notebookbar(s) are mostly correct, but even
if keyboard navigation is sequenced correctly with no traps or dropouts, we
need to correctly implement our existing support for GetAccessible() event
handling of each widget. Also need to ensure correct packing order for TAB
sequence across the Notebookbar(s), and support our use of Tooltips as
annotation exposed to the AT. Picking up the accelerators and any defined
short-cuts would just be gravy for an improved UX for a11y dependent users.

This remains to be fixed on all of the Notebookbar flavors for MUFFIN
