A client of mine recently asked why the "skip to main content" link is hidden by default in Seven (and all other themes). According to them (major university that does a lot with accessibility), the preferred recommendation these days is to always show that link; just because someone's eyes are working doesn't mean their hands are, for instance, and they don't want to have to tab past 30 navigation links. (Their example.)
Curiously the skip link is well-themed already. We can easily show it by overriding the html.tpl.php template and just removing the element-invisible class, but then we're subtheming Seven just for that, which seems odd. Given that it's already themed out, making a checkbox in the theme settings page seems more logical to me.
Would this make sense to anyone else before I try writing it? And if so, could this be backported to Drupal 7? (Yes it's new UI strings, but only NEW strings.) I'd rather not have to give my client a patched Seven just for that.
