What about cases where whether an element is focusable depends on the 
style and layout?  For example, in Gecko a random block is focusable if 
it has overflow:scroll or overflow:auto and is overflowing.  This allows 
users to tab to it and use arrow keys to scroll, which the accessibility 
people consider very important.

There's no way to select on the above criteria...
