QUOTE cite="http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/editing.html#the-accesskey-attribute"
  If specified, the value must be an ordered set of unique
  space-separated tokens, each of which must be exactly one Unicode code
  point in length.
UNQUOTE

are you saying that a single element may have multiple accesskeys that 
act as synonyms? -- in other words, accesskey="S @ 1" assigned to an 
element would be triggered by either the character capital-S the at-sign 
or the numeral 1?

is the user agent or assistive technology supposed to inform the user of all of
the options available as an accesskey for an element?

if so, how precisely does the cascade work?  first token, second token, third
token?  if i use the first token for one element and the second for another,
both will cause the expected action for the individual elements for which they 
have been assigned when the accesskey is invoked?
