[theme-reviewers] Updating the Accessibility Ready tag guidelines

For theme updates, it depends somewhat on whether the theme is adding
accessibility-ready for the first time: if so, then it needs to go through
a complete review, no matter what.
If the theme is updating and has already been approved for
accessibility-ready, then it just needs to be checked for regressions - for
small updates, this can probably be done through a diff comparison, but for
large updates, it's probably going to be most efficient to do the checks
again (with a higher level of trust, probably, based on prior passes).
I've been working on an accessible theme that I'll be releasing before too
long, at https://github.com/joedolson/accessible-twin-cities
It includes extensive documentation regarding accessibility features and a
structure designed to help spot some of the stuff that's specific to
It also includes a demo child theme that reverses a lot of the
accessibility features, so that you can see a comparison between one and
the other: https://github.com/joedolson/inaccessible-twin-cities
