SUMMARY

Have a single API for caret positioning and focus ring support designed in 
such a way that authors will actually use it.

RATIONALE

It's important when designing APIs driven by accessibility needs to ensure 
that authors will use it even if they're not thinking about accessibility.

To do this, drawFocusRing() brings disparate low-level APIs into one 
high-level API, by combining caret positioning with an API that is useful 
to authors not attempting to use accessibility APIs, namely the drawing of 
focus rings in a manner that follows platform conventions.

DETAILS

Change nothing.

IMPACT

No change.
