Seems to me that both objections are about toggling the visibility of 
the caret/focus ring.
Considering the precedent of the CSS cursor property, I wonder 
-rhetorically- if these
objections can be handled via CSS properties.

canDrawCustom was removed after feedback by Frank Olivier, I believe.

I agreed with it, reasoning that if an AT is going to draw a custom 
cursor, it's
going to do it. That's not something for the author to be able to override.

If a user is going to provide additional hinting/options; perhaps it
could be handled through new CSS properties, just as CSS cursor is.

SVG has the same concept of a focus ring on its paths.
As for caret styling -- it seems to be absent from CSS (is that correct?).
