Technical summary

Authors require the ability to pass path information to the UA accessibility
API in order to identify the screen location of elements in the shadow dom to
assistive technologies.

The most basic information expressed is a bounding box.

An AT may navigate the DOM and select an element of interest (such as selecting
a form element), for example: <canvas><button /></canvas> - it may examine the
bounding box of the dom element and do something with that information such as
drawing a big high contrast ring around the area or scrolling to the area.

When canvas is active, the shadow dom is not visible to the end user, but it
can be navigated. Were the canvas author able to run a method, similar to
drawFocusRing(element), they could inform the UA accessibility API of the
bounds of the element. I've proposed setElementPath as the method name.
