Exactly. Screen readers often have sophisticated additional
ways for users to navigate pages (e.g. list of headings, skipping
to the next "block" / structural element, etc). However, for users
with mobility impairments browsing via a plain vanilla browser,
but using alternative input devices, skip links can save a lot of
tabbing.

Anyway...whoops...I vowed to leave this thread alone.
