I think it falls under 'system services' and are thus session
independent.  We can have the session manager launch them on startup.
However, I can see us changing our mind on this in the future[1] if we
want to have different a11y solutions in different sessions.

Along these lines, should these apps be session managed so they can be
respawned if killed?

It seems the easiest way to do this is to modify the AT's to prevent
multiple instances from starting up.  That seems nicer than a
potentially fragile check within the users session.
