How about:

'In XHTML, <object> elements are, by default, focusable. However, authors 
can remove such elements from the focus traversal, by setting the 
element's tabindex attribute to "-1". This may be useful if selected 
<object> elements, for instance non interactive SVG images, are not 
supposed to participate in the focus traversal.'

Also focus traversal is now defined as:

"Focus traversal defines the elements that get focus and the order, in 
which they are traversed."

Please let us know within two weeks if this does not satisfy your issue.
