Dear EOWG and MWBP WG participants,

On last Friday's EOWG call in the discussion [1] of the "From Mobile
Web Best Practices 1.0 to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0"
document, under ACCESS_KEY [2] it was mentioned that while using
access keys is not required by WCAG 2.0, using them may be considered
best practice and so it should be mentioned. My argument is that what
people are really interested in is whether they achieve compliance or
not. Should there be another section on doing the right thing even
when it isn't needed for compliance?

best regards,
