Thank you Olaf.

On reviewing the focusable section, I doesn't address select events,
rather it addresses tab stop functionality and in place text editing.
This might be a good place to introduce a text selection transparency
feature, but it doesn't appear to do so at present.

OTOH, setting pointer-events to 'none' on the text element does solve
the specific problem presented in my use-case.  I'm so pleased, let me
know where to send beer!

So, this is an answer, and it invalidates the problem presented by my
use case.  I'm straining my brain to think of a case where it wouldn't
suffice.  No luck.
