I think it's better than my initial idea (have a shortcut to show all tooltips
at once) since it avoids the problem of overlapping tooltips. Perhaps rather
than cycling from the top if an element already has focus, the UA should cycle
forward from that focused element (and back to the top if necessary)?

Note also these old Mozilla feature requests for exposing titles of controls on
focus:
