Some might, but Ctrl-L also works in IE, so it's not like we're really
being inconsistent.

In general, using Alt for regular shortcuts isn't a good idea, because
it conflicts with shortcuts for menu items-- the HIG specifically
advises against it for this reason[1].  Are we sure that there are no
menus in any nautilus locale that use Alt-D to activate them?
