+1 on changing the DOM3 Events spec to say that DOMFocusIn should not
support mouse events. (Because of backwards compatibility issues, maybe
the DOM3 Events spec can only strongly recommend this behavior for
DOMFocusIn but may not be able to mandate it in all cases. Even if this
is true, I believe that CDF/WICD and SVG should mandate it.)

+1 on changing the test case.

That would be great. (I hope DOM Level 3 Events can make this more clear
DOM Level 2 Events.) As currently defined they are completely 
incompatible with
how focus events are expected to work in HTML documents and such.

So you also agree that this testcase needs an update?
