I am not sure I understand what is going on. If I am understanding
this, transforms are operators but Smooth is a property?

Short cuts are on; Transforms, Objects, Keyframes, Repeat, Grease Pencil.

But not Shading or Any of the buttons of the 3d View area.
It is the same under Object, View and Select some have them and some not.

If it were my decision, I would not say 2.5 is done until all the
buttons have shortcut pop-ups. This will make transition much easer
and hopefully help users shift from Noob button clickers to pro
key-shortcut users.

In any case it does not look like I can help out by writing help text
for the buttons.
