Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: 

1.1: The spec makes allowances for that already, by exposing the key to the DOM
and by suggesting that access keys be made known in the menus. Doing more than
that would be requiring UI, which is inappropriate.

1.2: I disagree; the user agent is the _user's_ agent, not the author's, and
can therefore ignore the author's wishes if the user so desires (or if the user
agent's implementor supposes that the user would so desire).
