Really chomping my way through 2.7 - here is sc 2.7.4 for your
perusal. There is an Editor's note: Review the definition of "important 
elements" - I expect this will be taken care of as another action.

I'm wondering if this should move to 2.7.1 and everything else move down 

2.7.4 (former 4.7.2) Direct navigation: The user can navigate directly 
to important (structural and operable) elements in rendered content. 
(Level A).

Intent of Success Criterion 2.7.4 (former 4.7.2) :
It is often difficult for some people to use a pointing device (the 
standard method of direct navigation) to select links. In this case some 
other form of direct selection - such as numbers or key combinations 
assigned to important elements - should be available which can then be 
accessed via the keyboard or speech control technology.

Examples of Success Criterion 2.7.4 (former 4.7.2) :
See example for 2.7.1: Discover navigation and activation keystrokes
