In your counterproposal to issue 129 you state
"An accurate list would be confusing to authors. For example, for each
element one would have to explicitly list that it *does* have a role if the
accesskey is set with a valid value that the user agent was able to apply"

This implies that the default role of any element is changed when an
accesskey atttribute is set. Is that correct?
