That's another thing that would have to be memorized explicitly rather
than using a standard technique. We want to avoid that as much as
possible. It would work functionally, but its another thing a disabled
user would have to "read and memorize from the manual" to be able to do,
which just raises the bar and makes GNOME a bigger PITA for them.
