We were also thinking about adding this to the new search bar. Eg

So you would only type
f to activate search followed by
today or maybe only
to (depending on search results) and select the found item in the search. This could be done with this issue as well.
Maybe it would be not even needed anymore in the date selector once it is available in the search? Although I agree it would be not intuitive and one would not know one can do it etc. so might need it in date selector and search.
Edit: Actually the current implementation of the search bar even requires that it is present somewhere in the date selector so we could easily solve both at the same time

Be careful with keyboard shortcut because of accessibility, during Piwik 2.x release we did a a11y audit then pushed some pull-request about it.
The big trouble is that each language has a different word for day/month/year so the character wouldn't fit.
I better suggest a personal setting to enable/disable that feature and the ability to bind custom keys on it.
