On yesterday's call I said that I would take a shot at simplifying the keyboard trap requirement. It still says "documented", but it is more clear that it only applies narrowly to editing views that render content to the point where keyboard traps become possible:

A.3.1.2 No Keyboard Traps: *Keyboard traps* are prevented as follows: (Level A)
    (a) In the Authoring Tool User Interface: No keyboard traps are present; and
    (b) In Editing-Views that Render Content: If an editing-view renders the content being edited such that a keyboard trap might exist in the content, then the authoring tool provides a documented keyboard method for moving the focus away from such content.

keyboard trap (UNCHANGED)
A user interface situation in which a keyboard interface may be used to move focus to, but not from, a user interface component or group of components.

Cheers,
Jan
