Supported. Section 7.4.4 Element level focus APIs [1] contains the
following:

"Do not use this method to hide the focus ring. Do not use any other method
that hides the focus ring from keyboard users,in particluar do not use a CSS
rule to override the 'outline' property. Removal of the focus ring leads to
serious accessibility issues for users who navigate and interact with
interactive content using the keyboard."
