I do agree that this idea, if ever implemented, would need a lot of a11y
thought. But the issues you mention are to do with the nautilus file
viewes and exist already AFAIK. The context menu issue would of course
be more important if they are being relied upon as in the design. There
must be a keybord shortcut for the context menu. I even have a goddamn
little context menu button on my keyboard that doesn't do anything.
