With Blink, we're specifially striving to make it easier to implement and
harder to ship.

In this particular case, I implemented drawSystemFocusRing and
drawCustomFocusRing together, they share most of the same code. So it was
hardly any extra effort to do both. It would be absolutely trivial if we
wanted to renamed drawCustomFocusRing to notifyFocusRingLocation or
something like that, which I would support.

If we think there's a chance that the Path object and hit testing will be
ready for implementation soon, I'd rather stick with that. However, if
that's a long ways off, I think notifyFocusRingLocation would be reasonable.
