I think if we take drawCustomFocusRing out of the picture we will be much
better off. I would prefer to wait until we have media queries that include
high contrast information to and fold that into the picture when we do L2.
It seems like the bigger technical concerns around that method. With
drawSystemFocusRing we have scrolling to deal with and a name change
(remove the Ring part - big deal).

The drawSystemFocusRing works fine except for the scrolling. Also, if
others were working on an L2 spec., e.g. ellipse, tweaking one method to it
is not a big deal.

You can find Dominic's feedback on this mailing list and the WhatWG one.
Ryosuke's feedback is on webkit-dev (as a reaction to me trying to patch
WebKit). He followed up on WhatWG and was also present at TPAC.

The feedback from a11y was privately during TPAC.

        Dominic from Google has expressed doubts and Ryosuke from Apple was
        very skeptical about the general API.
        In addition, someone from the A11Y team told me that they don't
        like the focus rings and want to redesign everything.

        Given this, I'd rather work on it separately so we're not in the
        same situation 4 months from now.

         It would be great to do that. This was an option I heard came up
         at TPAC and I wanted to hear more. The idea of a simple add on
         might take less time, but I'd rather see the full spec get through
         in a few months.

         What Ted said. There is nothing that says that shipping has to be
         a heavy process. We can ship iterations of Recommendations (or
         CRs, or
         whatever) with just the sort of small delta you mention. Nothing
         wrong with having multiple releases a year if they work.
