I don't think this is a good idea. Mainly, as already has been said,
those diff would get outdated the same way they do on the tracker. To
group them it would rather be useful to introduce a new
"Accessibility" category in the tracker -- if you create a new
location only for accessibility specific diffs you will only add up to
the confusion where to look after a specific diff. Plus, you (and
users) can't comment on tasks like they can in the tracker. So while I
agree that having a way to group all accessibility tasks should be
considered I don't think putting that in svn is a good idea but rather
a bad one.
