ISSUE-583: Elements that are descendants of an element having aria-activedescendant should not all be focusable

Elements that are descendants of an element having aria-activedescendant should not all be focusable

State:
CLOSED
Product:
ARIA 1.1 Core Mapping Specification

Description:
Section 4.3 states that all descendant elements be marked focusable. Firefox does this for tree widgets with the exception of the elements having group role. I actually think this is right. See test case 784 for a tree widget:

https://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/testharness/testcases/edit?testsuite_id=1&testcase_id=784

At the very least the descendant element would need to have an ID to be focusable. I have not notified Alex about this as I think it needs discussion.

Related notes:

David, Cynthia, and Alex agree that the text in the UAIG is sufficient -- that the descendant have both an ID and a role. Do you agree, Rich?

Relevant test case on this, but not sure what the number is.
