There is basically no cost to users. Any new user will immediately
understand “Alt+‹key›” and perhaps feel this is a great improvement.

How do you know there is no cost to users? Why do you think they immediately understand "Alt+<key>"?

In the setup I recommend on w32 that will mean that they should type "Windows-key + <key>".

I think I told you this before.
