No, I don't have C++ code pointers for this off the top of my head.

One think you could try (to unblock yourself) is to introduce one more
"default config" file: similar to what junit and cppunit tests get, but
this one for a11y testing. And then your cppunit tests could opt in to
use the a11y config, not the default cppunit one, with a single line in
the file.

I believe that would allow you to bypass the problematic config, without
having to fix all existing tests to work with your preferred config. And
then you don't have to undo anything, as your config would be free from
the problematic settings.
