Probably not. Also, I'm loathe to open a spec for one feature alone.
There must be other use cases and issues that we've not covered. These
we should actively collect to see where we need to work.

I will bring this up on next Tuesday's Open A11y call to discover
whether people think RFEs like this one belong on the existing Keyboard
bugs Wiki, or a separate new Wiki for open issues.

Either way, we can certainly use Open A11y resources at the Linux
Foundation to start collecting these kinds of requests.
