  2. TAB to the grid container.

You can hide the border outline using the following CSS class:

    .RadGrid:focus {
        outline: none;

or you can programmatically remove the tabindex="0" attribute from the Grid div wrapper element with this code:

    function OnClientLoad(grid, args) {
        if (grid.get_element().getAttribute("tabindex") == "0")
<telerik:RadGrid ClientSettings-ClientEvents-OnGridCreated="OnClientLoad" ID="RadGrid1" ...

Of course, if you have any suggestions on improving this behavior they are very welcome.

Could you please specify which controls that get the focus are non-interactive? The headers of the grid are interactive and if you press Enter while they have focus, you would trigger the sorting for the column.
