We will be updating the spec with more extensive treatment of focus, in 
early-mid April.  (I've busy with trael and another project until then). 
  I'll be reviewing everything written on this topic on www-dom.  Is 
there also stuff written on the WHATWG mailing list that I should be 
aware of, and if so, could you please provide some pointers?
