One can not surround inline text with a focus ring as is done with a focusable
[span], using Canvas, as the baseline information is not shared, only the
width. This defect inhibits text decorations, highlighting, and drawFocusRing.
The baseline value is valuable for aligning text of different font sizes or
styles, as well as annotating text with indicators. Such flexibility is
generally why Canvas is used in the first place. As for focus rings, that is
part of the work here, and baseline would allow Canvas the same accuracy of
drawFocusRing as span currently does.
