It would be useful to have a collection of the elements on a page that the user
can interact with.  this is similar the HTMLFormControlsCollection, except that
it would also include interactive elements from 4.11 and links from 4.12, and
could be gathered from any parent element, not just form and fieldset.

It would be nice to be able to include elements whose ARIA role would make them
interactive, that contain @tabindex!=-1, or that have event handlers associated
with them as well.  However some of those might be harder.

Having this colleciton would allow authors to easily find the interactive
elements, rather than having to test for specific element types or roles.
