As I said in my other email, I think the really important question is  
which focus-related events are mandatory implementation requirements,  
not which are or aren't deprecated. I think it would be fine to have  
events in the spec that aren't mandatory requirements, if there is  
value in defining their semantics for the implementations that do have  
them.

(P.S. I've found Anne's input on this thread on this to be thoughtful  
and informative. Let's recognize that perspectives may differ, and  
strive to treat each other's input with respect, even when we disagree.)
