Adding the aria-keyshortcuts attribute to an element does not change the behavior of the user agent by mapping the specified keyboard shortcuts to the triggering of the element's activation function. It is still up to the application to implement support for the keyboard shortcuts. The aria-keyshortcuts attribute exposes the fact that these shortcuts exist so that assistive technologies can communicate this information to users.

"Expose as object attribute 'keyshortcuts'".

Joseph to verify the above with FF, and add it the spec.
