Accordion vs WCAG SCs

Hi Folks,

One of my friends has wrongly implemented an accordion.

He wanted to implement an 'Open Search Box' button, which on activation
will give way to a 'Search box' and 'Submit' button.

Due to mishandling of tab-index property the search box and submit button
are always keyboard focusable even when they are invisible to sighted user.

I was thinking which WCAG 2.0 SCs this will fail under? I can think of
2.4.7 Visible focus as the focus in getting lost, but couldn't decide. This
doesn't looks to be a trap as the focus will return upon 2 tabs. Neither
have enough constructs for visible focus violation.

Any comments?
