Focus should happen exactly the same way as in the window manager, therefore 
it should not be specified in the specification.  Forcing individuals to 
have different behaviour in different situations reduces consistency and 
makes pages less accessible than they would otherwise be.

This does indeed mean that if you have click to focus window level situation 
then a click-to-focus SHOULD be implemented in your SVG UA (of course this 
will not always be possible, some implementations don't have the information 
or prefer consistent behaviour on different platforms) So I do not feel this 
is something that can be specified in the specification.
