I suggest removing the accesskey attribute. :)

It might set a bad precedent if we are moving forward here for two
reasons:

1) Users can not easily tell what the accesskeys are.
2) Accesskeys can conflict with the UA binds.

In the short term the disadvantages could be a lack of usability in some
web applications.
