Proposal (5) 
Document Keyboard Shortcuts ("Chrome"): Any *warping keyboard 
shortcuts* (shortcuts to destinations requiring multiple mouse clicks) 
are listed in the documentation. Note: Separate lists are permitted for 
the "base" user agent, each extension and each plug-in.

Previous discussion: 
Jim:
Think this should be all keyboard shortcuts (those with modifier keys)
should be listed in the documentation.

JR: That's what I meant. The term "warping keyboard shortcuts" was my 
(perhaps confusing) attempt to distinguish keystrokes that activate 
things I can see on the screen from keystrokes for things I can't see 
(e.g. a "File>Save" menu item when the "File" menu is closed).
