Quite possibly no more so than much of ODF Peter!

Trying to write an atomic test for that I would either
a) Ask an implementor to identify the services and how they are doing this
(written reply), then collate them and ask, as part of the test, which services
are being used (or test them programmatically if viable).
b)Report the item as untestable and report it back to the a11y committee
for action.

Let us know when it's on the agenda please Peter.
