The plan is to do this in v2, once we've proved that the stuff in the spec
already actually works. The idea is we'll define key labels to use in the
attribute, as in accesskey="up". For sequences we might do something like
"accesskey="x-s". To enable this future expansion, the spec currently limits
values to one character.

I'm marking this LATER for now but will reopen this once browsers have more
widely adopted what we have in the spec so far.
