I am curious as how the suggested @accesskey mappings would work in conjunction
with the new HTML 5 elements that define web page functionality? Are we in
danger of element bloat and how will Assistive Technologies harmonise these new
elements in HTML 5 with existing user functions like skipping headings by
pressing the 'H' key, 'on top' of more author defined accesskeys?

We are yet to see support for many of the new HTML 5 elements in AT, will
resurrecting accesskeys make implementation of the spec more complex and prone
to error?
