We decided to only use 1-4, which makes sense given the usual keyboard 
layouts.

That leaves us with 5 links for 4 keys.

Even though our sites does not have a lot of menu and navigation any 
more, I'd rather we had an access key for "Skip Navigation" than for 
"accesskeys". My logic may be wrong here, but when you are using 4 
keys, I don't see the point in using one of them to point to the 
document of the other three...

Alternatively we could use '0' for the accesskeys accesskey, since 
other sites are using that already.

My somewhat chosen, mostly random order proposal:
1- Home
2- Skip Navigation
3- Documentation
4- Feedback
(0- Accesskeys)

Thoughts?
