Summary of Issue: please add 'disabling focus outline with CSS' as a Failure for SC 2.4.3 - Focus Order
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
Please add an item to "Failures for SC 2.4.3 - Focus Order". Numerous websites cannot be navigated with a keyboard because the designer behind it hides the visual focus with CSS (outline:none). Also, many reset stylesheets contain this CSS rule, and therefore it's usage is widespread.  

Proposed Change:
Add hiding keyboard-focus with CSS (outline:none) to "Failures for SC 2.4.3 - Focus Order".
