I'm coming to this discussion rather late but I'd like to know if you also
considered sighted keyboard users when creating this test.
It's impossible to discern keyboard focus on the headings in the accordion.
Maybe you could apply the :hover colour change also to :focus in your CSS?
(I hope I'm stating the obvious when I point out that the colour contrast in
the test summary and the collapsed accordion headings is too low.)
