[webkit-dev] Bug 50126 - Fallback content in canvas element not focusable

WebKit doesn't have anyone doing regular bug triage.  The best way to
get a bug fixed is to fix it oneself. :)  You will find lots of people
in #webkit happy to walk you through the source code.

However, in this case, the bug as filed is not very actionable.

Someone wanting to solve that bug would have to go find the spec that
you mention (since it's not linked) and confirm that the text still
reads as such (specs often change), and then create a test case (since
none are provided), confirm what other browsers do (since that
information was omitted) and then finally consider a code change. :)

It looks like ARIA-interested people are CC'd.

If you're interested in fixing the bug, I'm sure one of us could help
walk you through the c++ code in question.  However w/o a test, spec
and browser-compatibility information a code change is premature.
