“The difficulty we have as testers is persuading the developers and other
stakeholders that it is non-conformant and needs to be changed.”

I am in complete agreement.

I support making the Tabpanel focusable, I think the benefits far outweigh
any negative impact on users.

I will stick with my initial view that the tabs being truncated or
invisible us not compliant with 1.4.10 Reflow.

I think it also a fail for WCAG 2.2 - 3.2.7 Visible Controls, when
released, but I need to study the SC to fully understand the requirements.
