Depends what OS you're using too. Mac users, in particular, might not
actually focus but the keyboard users will see the page scroll. For
keyboard, if the next tab stop lands on the appropriate link or button in
the page, then it's fine. With NVDA, I'd hope to find the <h1> right away
or maybe after a single press on h or the down-arrow.
