I know of at least one screen reader user who's been able to fix bugs in Firefox's UI using XUL.
You may be interested in the XUL accessibility guidelines: http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/XUL_accessibility_guidelines
Because XUL is declarative it makes it easier to arrange and debug and UI, and also makes it possible to write a validator that checks accessibility. Work started on those projects (from WebAIM), but it's currently stalled. We'd love to see that kind of work keep going.
