I think an accesskey to switch among alternate stylesheets is a good idea. 
 Why?  Well, one can make an alternate stylesheet to show only the heading 
levels, and it would be a view of the table of contents.  You may have one 
stylesheet for editing, showing the content of all the INS and DEL elements, 
and another for viewing what will be the final document.  Of course, choosing 
the print medium stylsheet will give you a print preview, something not all 
browsers do.  Having a quick key to switch among these is a good thing, whether 
there is a navigational element shown or not.

Just one designer's opinion. -W
