Hello Al.

We will respond to all of your points. Let me start by responding to  
Section 6 inline.

Content, referenced using the XHTML <object> element, is by default  
focusable. This includes content that is non-interactive in itself,  
such as, for example, static SVG images. The "skip" value is supposed  
to allow authors to remove such elements from the default focus  
traversal, in order to enhance usability. A pointing device may  
provide access to any focusable element, including those removed from  
the default focus traversal.

User agents may provide alternative focus modes, in order to allow a  
user to access elements, which were marked with the "skip" value.

I'm afraid, I do not understand this suggestion. Could you please  
elaborate?

Thank you and best regards,
Timur
