The spec currently states:

"The blur() method, when invoked, should run the focusing steps for the body
element, if there is one; if there is not, then it should run the unfocusing
steps for the element on which the method was called instead. User agents may
selectively or uniformly ignore calls to this method for usability reasons."

I think examples where calls of the blur() method need to be ignored should be
given. It would help to reinforce correct use, rather that the assumption that
the reader inherently understands good usability practice.
