Hi, Aaron

One approach would be to have two types of access keys.  If a control
is assigned access key 'Z', the something like ctrl-shift-Z focuses
and ctrl-alt-Z activates.  That way the user can make the determination
at time of use.  This actual choice of ctrl, alt, etc should probably
be configurable because of operating system and also access technology
conflicts.
