Removing ENABLE(ACCESSIBILITY) would be fine. Either way, I do think we need a better way to maintain !HAVE(ACCESSIBILITY).

There have been at least ~38 build fixes for !HAVE(ACCESSIBILITY) over the years ā€” one every 2-3 months on average. It was one of the pain points I remember in maintaining an outside port.
