For touch and keyboard navigation, it's up to the author to implement the
appropriate feedback mechanisms; it doesn't need extra help from the system
accessibility API. For example, CSS3 UI's properties can be used to specify the
elements in various navigation directions.

Zooming is handled already by the focus ring APIs.

In general, however, using <canvas> for something that can be sanely interacted
with in non-visual mediums is completely counter to the point of <canvas>. If
your content is media-independent, then use HTML, that's what it's for.
