The HTML-A11y Task Force contacted me today to ask if UAAG addressed one 
of the outstanding bugs on auto-focus:
https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=13572

2.1.4 Separate Selection from Activation:
The user can specify that focus and selection can be moved without 
causing further changes in focus, selection, or the state of controls, 
by either the user agent or author-supplied content.

I suggested including an example of disabling auto-focus:

Proposed:
Lucille has low vision and uses a screen magnifier. She browses a 
website with a form that automatically moves focus out of the visible 
area of her screen magnifier.  She opens the Preference window in her 
browser and deselects auto-focus. Lucille reloads the form web page and 
manually moves focus so she can keep track of the focus location in her 
screen magnifier.
