As the title. When tabbing it would act as shortcut to bypass all Quicktags buttons and place the focus in the textarea.

"Skip to content" is good for making something accessible that normally would not be navigated with a keyboard — so, skipping a navigation menu. But certainly, a tab from the title field should end up in the editor field... Something most people probably do. A separate link would slow down the vast majority of users.

Replying to nacin:

Agreed, this is handled separately on the Edit Post screen for both TinyMCE and Quicktags. The proposed link is to skip all buttons when there's no direct title -> editor bypass and is useful mostly for screen reader users.

I tried testing this patch. I must be missing something. If I put the focus in the title field and tab, I skip the Quicktags bar, and jump straight to the main content window. Here's a quick video of what I'm seeing: (FF 14.0.1).

This is only for the Text editor (Quicktags) toolbar. The Visual editor has it's own shortcuts: it has a "hidden" link to focus the editor as soon as the user tabs to the container, then Alt F10 to access the toolbar when the editor is focused/the user types, then use the arrow keys. Also there is some JS to tab straight from the title field to the editor content, it's been there since 2.1 I think.

Thinking more about this, it doesn't make Quicktags much better.
