it might be clearer in some cases, but it is not in use.

there is 30 and less of each of these keys with prepended access.

sure, but if you want to change the way almost all mappers do it, you
should at first open a discussion about it.

well, "classing" them under access (the wiki somehow already does
this) will still keep it a high number. It will not suddenly become
less complex.
