QUOTE cite="http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/editing.html#the-accesskey-attribute"
   If specified, the value must be an ordered set of unique
   space-separated tokens, each of which must be exactly one Unicode code
   point in length.

PROBLEM 1: how does the user know that more than one set of access keys
is available?

PROBLEM 2: how does the user select the set of access keys to use?

PROBLEM 3: can the use switch from one set of access keys to another
should the first set be too complicated to use?  if so, how?

PROBLEM 4: when using more than one token to assign an accesskey to 
a unique element, must all the accesskey values contain the same number 
of tokens in order for the accesskey values to validate?  

PROBLEM 5: why use the phrase "unique space-separated tokens"? 
"unique space-seperated characters, each of which must be exactly
one unicode point in length"

Looking at the specific problems:

PROBLEM 1: There is no set of access keys, just one key per accesskey'ed

PROBLEM 2: The user agent selects the access key, not the user.

PROBLEM 3: There are no "sets" of access keys.


PROBLEM 5: the phrase "unique space-separated tokens" implies certain
conformance requirements described in the infrastructure section.
