We have drawSystemFocusRing() almost done on FF 28 nightly Windows and Mac.
There is one small bug I identified and Rik Cabanier has agreed to fix. We
will be testing drawCustomFocusRing as well but it has been implemented in
FF 28. Both are fully working in Chrome Canary for Windows and Mac OSX.
Implementation will not be a problem.

Subject:	Call for Consensus: Canvas 2d spec

Hi folks,

this is a call for consensus on the following two propositions:

The HTML Accessibility Task Force accepts that path objects and relevant
methods operating on them, hit regions, text metrics other than width, and

ellipses could be moved to Canvas2d level 2 - i.e. a later verion of the

The HTML Accessibility Task Force accepts that the drawSystemFocusRing and

drawCustomFocusRing methods on elements in the "canvas shadow DOM" are "at

risk" in Canvas2D - and that without implementation, the Canvas2D
specification could drop them  to move to Recommendation.

For more background to these questions, please see

Silence will be considered assent, but positive answers for each of the
two propositions are preferred. Responses will be accepted until Midnight
Hawaiian time on Wednesday November 13, and should be made in this email

for the facilitators
