The menu element, along with the command element, can currently represent a
menu, context menu, or toolbar.  I propose that this functionality be extended
to allow menu and command to represent a tablist (tabstrip) as well.

Add 'tablist' state to menu element.
Add 'tab' state to command element.
Add 'tabpanel' state to command element.
Add 'tabgroup' to command element.

When a menu state is set to 'tablist' the menu represents a list of tabs.
When a command state is set to 'tab' the command represents a tab.
A command with state 'tab' must also have a tabpanel attribute set, the value
of which shall be set to the id of an element in the document which represents
the content (tab panel) of the tab.
A command with state 'tab' shall indicate which tabgroup it is a member of by
setting the value of the tabgroup attribute, only one tab within each tabgroup
may be selected.

User agents will only present as visible the selected tab from each tabgroup,
the remaining tabs from each tabgroup will not be visible, or accessible to
assistive technology.
