Based on my reading of this spec, I don't see any obvious accessibility issues. The purpose of the spec is to provide more information and automated decisions about server requests based on how it was made. The goal is to increase security.
The spec does acknowledge that there are different input modalities, keyboard, speech, etc. to activate a request. The browser is relied upon to normalize the various activation modalities into a click event and to add the appropriate new header information about the source of the request.
I see no concerns about these fetch headers revealing any personal data or use of assistive technologies.
