Yes, this would be expected as things are now. We are using just a single Deck
as a container for each of the Content panels. And we have the issue now that
we can have two Navigator panels open (one into the Sidebar Deck, the other as
its old Dialog format).  

The correct UI behavior is to differentiate how the accelerator is being
launched and test status of Sidebar--if fully closed (not just hidden), with
F11 the Sidebar Deck would open to the Styles & Formatting content panel. If no
other panel is selected from the Tabbar, an F11 would close the Sidebar.

The other state--Sidebar: fully open, in Tabbar only mode, or hidden--then an
F11 short cut would function as it does now.

Same stateful logic would be needed for each of the other Short
Cuts/Accelerators assigned to Sidebar Content panels. 

Note: While we have F11, F5, Alt+V Alt+G, each set of content panels for the
Deck need Short Cut/Accelerator assignments, see bug 84502

And these additional accelerators would need to test same stateful logic--is
Sidebar open or "fully" closed, and behave accordingly.

Yes this behavior is a little different than when the Sidebar is docked.
Presently F11, and Alt+V Alt+G open and close the undocked sidebar. I think
that is correct--short cut/accelerator removes the Sidebar dialog when it is no
longer needed.
