There is REPRO_ARGS variable. It can be used to pass any extra args to
Emacs. I provided relevant example in the manual (see the patch).

As for accessibility, I doubt that we can provide something that fits
all people. Not to mention that accessibility settings themselves can
affect reproducer.

We cannot expect users to do anything more than reporting their system,
Emacs, and Org mode versions. If desired, our Makefile provides EMACS
variable to control which Emacs executable to use.

This is for git and assumes that git version of Org is already
downloaded (how would you run make repro otherwise?).

For built-in Org, manual just says emacs -Q. Nothing much to simplify.
For package managers, users need to provide the load-path. Again,
details are already covered in the manual.
