Status: Did Not Understand Request
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: looking for further clarification

Suppose an AT allowed the user to make the focus track the mouse pointer, or
follow the keyboard focus, and that the user could switch from one to the
other. (This may or may not be a good idea, that's rather academic. There could
be one user who prefers this, in which case he might write such an AT himself.)

Given such a situation, do you think the user agent would have to be defined as
_non-conforming_ if it respected that user option, and _didn't_ move the
magnifier when the user was in the "follow mouse" mode rather than the "follow
focus" mode?
