yes, it is indeed a new spec feature (SVG 1.2 mobile). Opera intends to 
implement both 1.1 and 1.2 features.

It has to do with focus-highlighting (indicates which element is in 
focus). Elements can also get in focus by pressing the tab character, 
besides a pointing device, and maybe also by script.

You can turn it off by using the attribute focusHighlight="none"

See thread at 

see section in spec:
