Hi again,

currently 4.1.5 says:

4.1.5 Available Keyboard Shortcuts: The user can always determine  
available keyboard shortcuts by all of the following:

(a) A user setting in which keyboard shortcuts for currently  
available controls are visually displayed (e.g. an underlined letter  
or inclusion in a user interface menu).
(b) If a keyboard shortcut exists for a component, then it is  
available programmatically to assistive technology.
(c) A list of all keyboard shortcuts that is prominent in the  

However, what if the User Agent is for specific users, a user  
tailored agent (if you will)?

Here we say ALL must be followed, and in (a) there MUST be a visual  
display, seems to me we are making a mistake in insisting on one form  
of presentation over another.
