Sorry, but we don't get to make that call Heiko--correct implementation of
assistive technology is _required_ across the UI but fortunately is simple to
implement in UI.

We have rudimentary a11y support but are limited to F6 and TAB cycling. 

Mnemonics, with tooltips are provided but they are not exposed correctly as
accessible events/targets while navigating with an AT.

@Kendy, @Szymon?
