With Access Keys you have a problem that they won't be fully supported
until fully used and one of the factors in their not being fully used
is they aren't fully supported.

However, it seems to me that there is a fairly obvious way of labelling
their function in HTML:  put a title attribute on the element that
is accessed by the key.  It's then up to the browser to provide a table
of access keys from this information.

In this case, there seems little conflict with the perception that
title always means a "tool tip" pop up display.
