If done intuitively, it shouldn't present any difficulties.

This situation matches the guidance at
http://whatsock.com/training/#hd12
Which was written in colaboration with various members of the ARIA Working Group when it was written.

Some parts of the tutorial are a bit dated now, but when ARIA 1.1 becomes spec I'll be revamping all of this to conform with the updated information.

All the best,
Bryan

Subject: Re: [WebAIM] Accessible dragon drop component? – some questions

Ah, but what if there's more than one drop zone? We had a scenario just last week where there were I think 5 possible drop zones. The only way I could think to make that one work was by presenting a menu of possible drop zones when the draggable item was activated. This works well using a keyboard, but I wonder if using such a different paradigm could make things confusing for sighted keyboard users.
