Then I think it's a good idea, in modern web applications using tab(for
example in gmail) is really messy and keeping track of the order of ALL
focusable elements is very hard.
And if scopes are added it is much easier to track focus that way.

But I think that once you tab one more time on the last element of a scope
thenit should go to the first element in that scope.

That way you can add tabindexscope to forms and all elements of the form
will be loopable.

I don't understand how this is related? just to make a point?
Or to ask someone here to tell you if it is according to the specs or not?
