I think that there is a need to be very clear that drag and drop needs to
support non-mouse operations.  I can accept the ambiguity of the phrases like
"The user would probably have to explicitly indicate his intention to perform a
drag-and-drop operation" as long as the support for keyboard users to complete
the task is plainly stated.  

I'd like to see some form of my suggested first sentence included: "Drag and
drop operations must be able to be accomplished without a pointing device." 
This "must" makes it clear.  In the current version the word "probably" weakens
the requirement, or at least muddies it.
