an "undiscoverable" feature is like having no feature at all: only the
people knowing that there's such a feature will be able to use it, and
we'd have a whole slew of people bitching and moaning like we did when
we had the location dialog opened by Ctrl+L in the FileChooser.  sure,
the feature was there - but nobody was able to find it unless told.

personally, I'd take no feature against an undiscoverable one.

it would be an accessibility issue, and I'm positive that the a11y
people would *not* let this be implemented - and with good reasons.
