This only fixes the in-page link issue for screen reader users. Screen
readers set keyboard focus to elements that are scrolled to (they
wouldn't need to do this if the browser itself set focus). This does
not resolve the issues for sighted keyboard users, thus the continued
need for the scripting 'hacks'.
