It appears this was closed because reviewers misinterpreted the simplified
wording of the bug's title. I thought the actual bug report made clear that the
goal was not requiring content authors to provide keyboard UI (which would be
WCAG territory) but rather than the HTML 5 spec should provide sufficient
infrastructure to allow user agents to--should they choose to do so--provide UI
for drag and drop for users of keyboards and keyboard emulators, just as they
do for users of pointing devices. It should not be difficult for user agents to
add this extra use method without the content authors having to take any extra
steps beyond what they normally do for mouse users. This bug was a placeholder
for more in-depth analysis. Has a11ytf reviewed HTML5's drag and drop
architecture to the point where they feel this has been sufficiently addressed?
