A sequence such as Alt+F S is activating two UI elements in sequence,
the File menu followed by the Save sub menu item.. Although you are
hitting them in sequence, and you the user may perhaps internally
recall the key sequence as a combination to invoke the save action, it
does not imply that the Save menu choice has an access key, or
shortcut, property value of "Alt+F S".

The handling of sequenced keys should be in the menu keyboard handler,
not through assigning sequences to a given item.
