Re: SVG Navigation Proposal

Hi, Rich–

Thanks for pulling this together.

I had a short conversation with Florian Rivoal (CCed), the editor of the 
CSS-UI L4 spec, and we talked about focusability in CSS, including the 
notion of a 'focusable' property (to reflect the existing state in CSS), 
and about depth/nesting. He's agreed to join a future telcon with us to 
help coordinate.

I propose that the implicit "semantic" mechanism for the focusability of 
an element be the following:
* textual elements
* links (<a>)
* any element (including <g>) with a <title> or <desc> immediate child

We can also allow explicit focusability, but the default should just 
fall out of the model.

Regarding the depth/nesting proposal, I'm fine with what you've written. 
I do think we should emphasize that nested containers is the proper way 
to do that; this could be either container elements like <g> or <svg>, 
or some sort of virtual grouping that lets an author override/work 
around the tree structure. Again, this should be a consequence of the model.
