[Devarshi wrote] 1. Page headers could have a tabindex attribute of zero
(sequential focus navigation) allowing keyboard only users to access
important sections in the page, without having to tab extensively.

Adding additional tab stops to headings would only add to the number of
times to the user must tab.  Providing other ways for keyboard users to
navigate other than tab would be preferential.

I do believe it is helpful to place error messages as tab stops.  Other
scrolling areas such as license text would also need to be tab stops in
order for users of speech recognition to be able to scroll them with voice
commands.  Read only fields that are enabled should also be keyboard
accessible.
