OK. I will continue with the testable statements.

Thanks Rik,

Hi Rich,

yes, we are supposed to set the location of the fallback element.
So, if you use a11y software and inspect the region of the fallback
element, it should be the bounds of the path that was in effect during

  Hi Jay, Rik, Mark,

  I am writing testable statements for us here:
      (Mark, I think that in general we could work off modified versions of
  your test file with the
  2 boxes).

  What I noticed under drawFocusIfNeeded was that it says we are notifying
  the user of the location of the focus ring:


  What really brought this to a head for me was writing the testable
  statement for when the bounds are clipped and should be shouldbe subject
  to the clipping region. When the focus area is clipped by the canvas
  element, only the visual representation of the focus outline is clipped
  to the clipping region.

  Then it says we inform the user of the location given by the path.

  It was my understanding that drawFocusIfNeeded did not set the location
  of the fallback element. Yet, here it clearly states that it does.

  Did I misunderstand or forget our decision on this?
