This is an interesting problem (regardless of whether or not you agree
about kb shortcuts) - at a certain point, learning comes to a
near-complete stop. It's another problem with the "Paradox of the
Active User" - once the user knows how to complete a task, he isn't
motivated to learn, and if he isn't motivated to learn, then
performance at a task will not improve.
I'd love to hear anyone's ideas about how interaction design might
motivate "advanced learning".
