  I don't quite follow. The closest we come, today, to a standard is
  what WCAG states about ways to allow an UA to go directly to the main
  content of a document.

  So a "skip to"* link seems quite appropriate, does it not?

  The exact phrasing is, of course, not something either WAI-IG OR the
  WAI should concern them/ourselves with. It depends both on the context
  and on the language used - not something for us to deal with.
