aloha, al!

you are correct in asserting that my proposal addresses behavior by a
single user agent and not by user agents in general...  i also concur with
your observation that:

I believe that the actual meaning of the initial post with this language
was "implement all access keys consistently" as opposed to inconsistent
implementation such as where ALT-F is not implemented because it conflicts
with the File menu but ALT-V is implemented and hides the View menu.  There
are other guidelines that imply the consistent ACCESSKEY implementation
should in addition blend well with the implementation of other UA and OS
controls in effect in the user interface.
