I think that it is worth the trouble to include onfocus and onblur event
handlers to trigger the same script as onmouseover and onblur.  It may not
be blurring the line between accessibility and usability, but for sighted
keyboard users it does help in tracking the focus.  You can see a simple
example of this at http://ncam.wgbh.org.
