Whether the UA actually moves focused elements into view or not without an AT
is in fact completely at the whim of the UA  the spec doesn't even give a
"may" for that. (If you think it should, please file another bug  I think it
would be reasonable to explicitly allow that.)

As a user, if I wanted to move focus around without the page scrolling, e.g.
because I happen to know the page's design and I want to be looking at the top
of the page while tabbing to controls under the fold, I don't see why my user
agent should be non-conforming if it gives me that option.

Generally speaking, everything in the UI is optional. The user agent is the
_user_ agent, not the author agent. It's supposed to do whatever the _user_
wants. This means that pretty much any user interface feature is optional.
Heck, the entire rendering section is optional.
