Readily Accessible... in a cabinet?

Would a GFCI outlet in a cabinet be considered readily accessible?  Our local AHJ is saying no because homeowners will more than likely place items under the sink in front of the outlet.  We do not understand how this is any different than many homeowners who will put free standing shelving, or permanently mounted shelving within the dedicated electrical space for a panel, yet those pass inspection!  This is only an issue because we cannot find a 2/p AFCI/GFCI combo breaker to just please the local AHJ.
