Regarding your earlier question regarding why the same string may be 
defined more than once.  I am not sure that if that is the original 
question but if it is, here is my attempt at an answer:
Different modules in AOO, for example sw for Writer and sc for Calc, can 
not easily access resource files from other modules.  In some cases you 
can try to move such strings to a common base module such as svx.  But 
that is not always possible and involves some work.

In other words, there are technical reasons for duplicate strings as 
well as lack of time and laziness.

Is this "no accelerators" rule still active?  Even in languages where 
automatic selection of accelerators work, can that not break 
documentation?  I mean, can adding a new string lead to all accelerators 
being redefined?

And there is point 3 in section 1.1 in the Mnemonics_Localisation page 
mentioned above:

    "The bugs are fixed manually in Web-LingTool by placing the '~' 
character to a different position"

Removing all explicitly defined accelerators would remove such bug fixes.
