The Theme Review Theme announced today that they will shortly be requiring new themes to include keyboard navigation to be built in.
The main goal for this new requirement is to make the themes on WordPress.org have better accessibility features by default. Having keyboard navigation included means you would be able to navigate theme settings and such in the browser without the use of a mouse. This is especially needed for users of alternative input devices who are sighted.
