HTML has its own set of focus events which are different altogether from  
what SMIL or SVG has... They don't bubble though. (And are used throughout  
the SMIL specification examples...)

Basically, we have:

(1) focusInEvent
(2) focusOutEvent
(3) DOMFocusIn
(4) DOMFocusOut
(5) focus
(6) blur
(7) focusin
(8) focusout

1, 2, 5 and 6 don't bubble. The others do. Yet SMIL sort of implies 1 and  
2 are equivalent to 3 and 4 which seems completely wrong[1]. SVG  
introduces 7 and 8 and has a sort of similar claim they are equivalent to  
3 and 4 which at least makes a bit more sense except for the fact that  
neither SVG nor SMIL defines how aliasing actually works... (In detail and  
all that.)

Fortunately SVG is still in LC and can be "fixed." Not sure about the  
incompatible focus events in SMIL...
