You say that some screen readers don't recognize a role=tab if it's not a
direct child of a role=tablist.  You then say that role=presentation "deletes"
an element from the accessibility mapping, allowing the descendent role=tab to
act like a child of the role=tablist, thus being recognized.

Is this latter statement what actually happens in the screenreaders previously
mentioned?  Or is it a statement of what *should* happen in a good
screenreader?
