Related notes:

* Directory lacks unique supported properties for subclasses to inherit.

* The definition of directory (which is a subclass of list) is a list of references to members of a group, such as a static table of contents. A tablist is an interactive control for which authors SHOULD manage focus. It's not a directory.

* Tablist is also a subclass of composite, "a widget that may contain navigable descendants or owned children." That seems sufficient.

Setting the state to "Pending Review." It's a one-line change (the other two lines are for removing list as a superclass of menu and listbox. For the purpose of this review request, please ignore those two lines. If approved I'll commit just the tablist-related change to resolve this action.)
