I see. That does make a difference. To reframe my earlier line of  
questioning - is it conforming to specify navsubtree=false? If so,  
does that mean it would now be conforming to have inaccessible canvas  
content, or are authors required to provide some alternate means of  
accessibility if they specify that value? If the latter, what are some  
examples of how they would do that?
