WCAG-WG,

Technique G1 documents needs of keyboard only users with respect to skipping repetitive block of content.
It also recommends a skip link should become visible on tab focus.
Given this, how is H69 a sufficient technique by itself? It does not help keyboard only users in most browsers.   
Some websites refuse to provide skip links if they have implemented headings or even aria-landmarks.
I suggest  H69 should not be listed as a sufficient technique for SC 2.4.1 but as an advisory technique.
