Dean Symm Working Group,

The SVG Working Group is requesting an extension of the accessKey syntax 
to be the something like the following:

Accesskey values allow an author to tie a begin or end time to a 
particular key press.

If no Eventbase is specified, the key press is independent of focus 
issues. This case is modeled on the HTML accesskey support. Unlike with 
HTML, user agents should not require that a modifier key (such as "ALT") 
be required to activate an access key.

If an Eventbase is specified, the key press is dependent on whether the 
Eventbase element has focus at the time the key is pressed. In 
otherwords, the Accesskey-value results in a resolved instance time 
added to the begin or end instance time list only if the specified key 
is pressed and the specified Eventbase has the focus at the time the key 
is pressed.

An access key value has the following syntax:

|||Accesskey-value  ::= ||( Eventbase-element "." )?||  ||"accesskey(" character ")"( S? ("+"|"-") S? Clock-value )? |



This feature is seen as important for several environments, especially 
those without pointer support.

The SVG Working Group would appreciate feedback on this extension request.

Best Regards,
Vincent Hardy, on behalf of the SVG Working Group.
