Hi Charles,

Interesting. So there are few exceptions. I would like to see navigation by
role like access (when this makes it in).

You could place an optional key assignment here like access and eliminate
accesskey altogether.

Looking at the DOM Interface, why is there a click on a command? This is
not something that is visible.

As far as I can tell, the command element in HTML5 is mostly rewriting the

same thing, plus a bit of stuff clarifying how it relates to any other
kind of element...
