Proposed text for the checkpoint formerly known as 11.1 -- no matter where
it takes up permanent residence...

11.1 Document the default input configuration for the user agent. [Priority 1] 

Note: Readily available information about keyboard access is crucial to the
effective use of a user agent by users with visual impairments and some
types of movement impairments, otherwise a user with a disability (or
multiple disabilities) may not think that a particular task can be
performed or may try to use a very inefficient technique to perform a task,
such as using a pointing device (like a mouse), or by using an assistive
technology's mouse emulation keystrokes.
