I suggest removing the accesskey attribute. :)

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

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.
