Good evening,

I think the use cases are reasonably prevalent around the web, and in the UI toolkits that currently support such behavior.  However, I would be happy to provide more detail.  I would like to discuss the issue during an HTML Accessibility Task Force call first.  Perhaps this can be added as an agenda item to an upcoming call?

Thanks,
Everett Zufelt
