Accessibility LayoutTests have unfortunately been a bit of a black box  
since I only know Mac stuff.

It's possible that Windows, for example, supports an accessibility  
value attribute for sliders, but it's also possible that it does not.  
Likewise, it's possible Linux could support that attribute, or not.

All I am sure of right now is that it's not implemented now.

So instead of adding Skipped tests for every platform except Mac on  
every checkin I make, I've just been making them mac tests only.

If someone knows differently on these subjects, please let me know
