Do you mean someone will break something in LibreOffice and will fix it 
in the future or do you mean someone break accessibility and Hypra has 
to fix it itself in the future ?

In the last scenario, I don't see any reason to have non-regression test 
as we already know that people usually don't take care of accessibility 
and it's why we're forced to keep LibreOffice 4.2 for now. If we expect 
to have one developer fixing bug of thousand of others (on many free 
software) especially because it's accessibility I don't think it's reliable.
