if a role changes for a node, the AX tree might need to be updated because an element's ignored/not ignored status can change.

Hey Chris! Is there any way to optimize this so that childrenChanged() is only called when necessary? It seems like it could be a costly operation if it is not needed.

i think we might be able to limit it to times when accessibilityIsIgnored status changes based on the role change

That sounds good!
