Why is this exciting?
I truly do not see accessibility referred anywhere in code change conditions for Commander. So , could maybe this be a feature to greatly help Chrome integrate with approach assistants better?
Let us begin with the new Chrome flag:
Ordonner – Enable a composing interface to browser comes with
Luckily for us, the Chromium bug to track this feature is public and it has more details.
“This is a tracking bug for experimenting with a command palette: a text interface to common Chromium functionality.”
Look at this comment:

“This command source adds commands to create a new Doc, Sheet, Meet, etc.

Now, here is the corresponding code:
There will be a way to type “New Google Doc” and Chrome will open the recently added shortcut https://docs.new which will then create a new Google Doc in your account.
Now, think about Google Assistant on the web. You will need an interface to listen to someone saying “New Google Doc” and then convert that into an action.
Do you see why I am excited about this feature?
The Commander feature is yet to land in the Canary channel. I will test it and update this article as soon as I have access to the latest build with this flag.
