Summary of Issue: dependent on UA?
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
Surely this is dependent for the most part on the UA itself? Authors should not have to worry, *unless* they\'re actively overriding focus (e.g. via CSS styling), in which case the wording needs to be changed. Specifically setting very visible additional focus hints via CSS can certainly improve usability/accessibility, but this is only in addition to what the UA already does (and if the UA complies with UAAG, even its default should be enough not to be a barrier to users)

Proposed Change:
If this is more along the lines of authors actively overriding focus (e.g. via CSS styling), the wording needs to be changed...maybe \"Authors should not override or suppress any default focus indicators\". This would also require a rewrite of the relevant \"How to meet\" and \"Understanding\"
