Comment (by joedolson):

 Thanks, @kjellr - I'll go straight to what would be the ideal from my
 perspective. One of the problems is just being able to consistently
 catalog all of the core blocks. The most useful thing for me, and I think
 for the accessibility team as a whole, would be a publicly accessible
 index page containing a single instance of all core blocks in their
 default state. For testing purposes, they should have a basic level of
 content (e.g., images should have alt text included, galleries should have
 captions, menus should have items in multiple levels, etc.)

 Something like gutenberg.run, but focused on the front-end rather than the
 back-end, so that we can more easily test the output of blocks. Right now,
 the labor involved in setting up a site, building Gutenberg, finding the
 right block, etc., is a major pain point when all you really want to do is
 verify that the output of a block is OK.

 If this was also tied to e2e testing, that would be valuable; even though
 there are a lot of accessibility issues that can't be tested with
 automation, being able to quickly catch the issues that are testable would
 be extremely valuable. Something like an SVG in a button with no
 accessible name should never make it past automated tests.

 If there's a way to easily do that already, please let us know.
