Re: IE9

As was pointed out previously, a navigable canvas sub-DOM is only a partial solution.

Provision of a focus ring on the canvas whose co-ordinates are programmatically exposed so that AT such as screen magnifiers can correctly convey current focus on areas of a canvas.

Ditto for caret

Also provision of a native method to pass events fired on areas of the canvas to elements in the sub-DOM.
