  GAWS was, however, an interesting link to have. I would like to
  understand their position on "Following WAI recommendations where
  appropriate" though.

I don't presume to speak for the organization but my personal take is that
some of the recommendations such as Access Keys may or may not be a good
recommendation to follow. That is an area of considerable debate, which ones
are available that don't conflict with operating system, browser,
accessibility device/programs already assigned keys. No set of "standard"
available keys that can be relied upon, etc. all make following that
recommendation less than an ideal situation.
