Per the spec accesskey is registered to some element even if the
element isn't the document tree. Only changing the accesskey attribute or
moving the element to another document should change the assigned access key.

That is not what browsers seem to do.
If element isn't in the document tree, one cannot activate the element using

(Tested on Gecko and Webkit)

So, the spec should mention that the elements which aren't in the document
tree should not have assigned access key.
