4.1.10 Override UI Keyboard Commands: The user can override any keyboard 
shortcut binding for the user agent user interface except for 
conventional bindings for the operating environment (e.g., for access to 
help). The rebinding options must include single key and key plus 
modifier keys if available in the operating environment.


4.1.xx Specify preferred keystrokes: The user has the option to 
establish a preferred set of keys that will be used to override 
*recognized* author supplied keybindings (i.e. access key).

(An aside: some people wondered how the user will know what keys control 
what if the UA's muck with what the author sets? My answer was that the 
new text of 4.1.5 "User has the option to have any *recognized* direct 
keyboard commands displayed with their associated controls" handles this 
communication - whether the display is visual or auditory.)
