This is very true, and it's actually what's in the proposal document at
the moment.  So feel free to ignore my previous ramblings  :)  

I'm still not utterly convinced about how you'd consistently get focus
to the toolbar in all cases without a special shortcut, though-- for
example in a typical text editor app, you have menu bar, toolbar and
editor pane, and pressing tab in the editor pane inserts a tab
character.  Maybe the "Ctrl+Tab brings you out of the current container"
thing you mentioned really does always work in those situations, though
(or should be made to).
