It's something beyond my .ui file knowledge to comment knowingly, but it
sounds weird with me that you can add new relations into that file, but you
cannot define an accessible name there :)

Anyway, new relations will require to change ATK standard and then add
screen readers support, and LibreOffice may be the only one who will expose
them. So LibreOffice-only solution has to exists, that makes developer's
life easier, and doesn't require any standards changes.
