> Rationale: As far as I can tell drawFocusRing() already does this.


drawFocusRing does not include line height attributes for caret tracking; it
only includes an x, y position. Caret height is used by some AT software to
better indicate the position of the caret. For example, arrows may be
positioned above and below the caret height to better indicate the current
position of the caret. This is not covered by drawFocusRing. For caret
tracking, it's unnecessary to redraw the focus path each time that the x, y
position of caret needs to be updated.

I'm not sure what the consensus is on Issue #131

Is the editor supportive of that issue?
