Player loses focus after clicking on the controlbar

Using the demo page here:

If you click on the video display, the video will get focus and you can use the shortcut keys, but if you click on anything on the controlbar (play/pause button, progress bar, etc.) the player will lose focus and you can no longer use the shortcut keys.

Was there a reason for choosing this design, or is this a bug? Is there a simple way to change this behavior so that the video will always get focus when anything inside is clicked?
