Sorry, I used the wrong phrasing there. I had meant deprecated from
general practice (sites *and* browsers), so that it would just be left
as it is for now, and phased out completely later. 

I would rather see active development of the DTDs to make @role valid
(as you suggest) rather than further development of accesskey

Kind regards,
