1. a key for cycling is a good idea (even nicer: a way to cycle through 
a set of selected frames... but this would require bigger modifications 
to the code). (when the user is not in text edit mode) would shift+tab 
an option?
2. with alt+click (i'm not sure if it is indeed alt, i'm on OS X right 
now) you can already select objects wich are behind other objects (on OS 
X, you use the apple+click)
3. ctrl+tab is already in use for cycling through the open documents
