Positioning different sections of the content via CSS would satisfy SC
2.4.3, since focus would follow logical order within each section of
the page, and there is no logical requirement that the sections be in
any relative order. We have added such an example to Understanding SC

We have also changed the SC so that there is a success criterion at
Level A that requires the focus order to follow information and
relationships conveyed through presentation.  While there are
sometimes several orders that would be consistent with the
presentation, we do not feel that your proposed example would meet
this new success criterion.

(There is also another SC at level AAA:   2.4.11  If a Web page can be
navigated sequentially and the focus order affects operability,
focusable components receive focus in an order that is consistent with
the visual layout order of the web page. )
