hi ian, 

I will try to ask/explain it from a different perspective then.
Unless a focus event is recognized by AT, at the co-ordinates of the focus
rectangle drawn on the canvas, then AT will not be able to move focus to the
rectangle as it effectively has no meaning other than a being a shape on the
canvas. I understand that a focus event can be flagged by the use of standard
APIs. Does the the spec currently require/recommend that such an event flag
occurs when the focus rectangle is drawn? If not why not?
