Gecko and Chrome have indicated they do not desire this distinction.
You have indicated your desire to maybe enable keyboard access in the
future, but you do not have a thought out UI. Given this is the data
we are working with it seems unwise to change direction at this point.

The specification is modeled after Gecko and Chrome and very much
intents to have keyboard access working. As per usual, everything that
is not restricted is expected to work.

I am willing to add some wording to the security section to make the
risks of keyboard access more clear. Does anyone have some suggested
