Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: I don't see the problem here. Yes, the spec says that browsers are
allowed to ignore .blur(), but the specs also say that the user agent can
completely ignore the author's style sheets and apply different ones. That's
just the way the Web works: user agents work on behalf of the user, not the
author. That's why they're called _user_ agents. You can still call .blur() for
your case, and if the user trusts you then it'll work fine. If the user doesn't
trust you then he'll be in the text area and be able to type, and if he wants
to be elsewhere he can manually move focus.
