I would like to proceed here so we can close this document.

On process....
Chaals, what concrete solution do you put forward?

You had mentioned previously
"I therefore suggest removing the text about making the access keys
discoverable as an author responsibility."
Which text exactly?
Or is there some other resolution you suggest?

Are there others, aside from Alan who has already spoken up, with an
opinion on the subject?

On topic....
Chaals, I still don't understand what you are objecting to.

1) we don't mention anywhere that the author does this or must do this.
2) we cover things like being consistant, using primarily navigation
links, etc. rather than who does it
3) You were not sure what I meant when I spoke of associating access
keys with the navbar.
   We say in 3.1 "Typically a "Web site" has common navigation links
that apply to most, or all, pages in the site (a menu bar for example).
Such navigation links should be associated with access keys and the keys
assigned should be the same on all pages. Other frequently accessed
links (such as navigation within a page) may also benefit from being
associated with an access key."

Could you please elaborate on the problem a bit and come up with a
solution that you can propose?
It is rather late to get into a discussion at this level and I really
would like that commentary a few month earlier.
As such I want to finish this as quickly as possible.
