 > The original jQuery UI autocomplete, see
 https://jqueryui.com/autocomplete, populates the search field with the
 highlighted option value when using a keyboard.
 > In the current WP implementation this doesn't happen.

 Right, and inserts the originally typed string back when returning to the
 input field with the arrow keys.

 > By the way, neither of these two behaviors is ideal for accessibility.

 not prevent the menu item from being focused.

 If not changing the input field value while using the arrow keys is best
 for accessibility, lets do that. Patching in a min.
