Maciej's words seemed to me explicit that this is an idea for an
implementation not an existing implementation:

He said: "here is what I would expect us to do, if we were to

Presumably testing access with visual display, or sticky keys, or
speech control in combination with the VoiceOver Item Chooser or the
JAWS Links List would give you some idea of how such an implementation
might work.
