Given that, and given the benefit of using consistent elements for consistent
semantics, I really don't think introducing a new element here is a good idea.
This is especially true since if we do introduce a new element here we'll end
up having to introduce yet another new element for keyboard shortcuts, another
one for toolbar buttons, and another one for the command indirection once we
add that. This is IMHO a non-scalable solution.

<command> provides a simple API that covers all these problems in a consistent
way, without losing the ability to style the resulting content.
