@frivoal let me get back to you on that, when I have time to be more complete. Mostly because it would be sooooo much easier and probably more performant to use the CSS engine and CSS rules, rather than complicated fiddling with adding and removing and changing tabindex attributes every time a key is pressed or focus changes. I know I’m near the boundary line at the edge of what CSS is for, but so is the 'resize' property, and so are the other things being discussed. I want to move the line, if needed, to be able to use CSS in this hugely beneficial way. 

@hugoholgersson for component-like things, I want to be able to do what native elements do with keyboard control. Which means that when you tab to a radio button, menu, etc., then you can use arrow keys to move focus within it, or tab to exit the component. So, that is two different levels of focusing.
