The attribute takes a space-separated list of keys, and the browser can choose
one of them, or another key altogether, or no key at all. This is a change from
current browsers/HTML4, and if browsers implement that and make clever
decisions based on the user's environment like the spec suggests,
accessKeyLabel in turn exposes information about the user's environment that
was not possible before.
