Navigation within the Sidebar Deck is pretty consistent with keyboard already
<TAB>,<Shift>+<TAB> to move within each Content panel on the Deck. And then
<DOWN>/<RIGHT> to go forward or <UP>/<LEFT> to go backward between the content
panels and the tab bar elements.

<F10>, <F6> and their <Shift> will cycle between the Main menu, the toolbars,
the Sidebar and the document canvas.

Those keyboard navigations have not changed and are pretty stable--also how we
support a11y Assistive technology.

The defined global shortcuts would be in addition to these existing keyboard
navigation resources.  But because they'd be targeted across the UI--they would
be *direct* than the <F6> cyclic shortcuts. Benefiting all keyboard users.
