Possibility to fill lookup attributes via keyboard

Product: MDMCE 11.5.0 - Single-Edit-Screen
Currently the (new) simplified UI permits a convenient enrichment of most attributes just using the keyboard, e.g. TAB-key to jump to the next input field. However, lookup attributes are more complicated to be filled even though most typists (enrichment workers) know the valid values by heart, they have to open the corresponding popup window (can be done with CTRL-ENTER), then select there the value and click OK. It would be an enormous enhancement for big companies (with a lot of enrichment work to be done) to allow for convenient enrichment of lookup attributes by just using the keyboard.
Possible options:
- allow typing in the lookup attribute field (maybe with type-ahead or just validating on item save)
- set focus on OK button in popup once the lookup value is selected (currently 8 TAB-keys are needed to get to the OK button).
