The CSS Working Group just discussed `distance function`.

<details><summary>The full IRC log of that discussion</summary>
&lt;florian> Topic: distance function<br>
&lt;florian> github: https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/3384<br>
&lt;emilio> jihye: I've been working on improving the distance function to move focus to the correct next target.<br>
&lt;emilio> jihye: If you have any opinions it'd be useful, and I think it's the biggest issue<br>
&lt;emilio> florian: this is the heuristic part of the model, to guess which element is the right next target to move focus too<br>
&lt;emilio> florian: jihye has done a lot of great work on that, which is strictly better than what's on the spec<br>
&lt;AmeliaBR> q?<br>
&lt;emilio> florian: I think we could get some other round with UX and what not, but we should probably roll it in and try to get it into the spec<br>
&lt;emilio> AmeliaBR: does the geometric calculation really need to be specified?<br>
&lt;emilio> AmeliaBR: do any other thing depend on the result of the function?<br>
&lt;emilio> florian: not other properties, but we don't want a magical perfect heuristic, just a good enough heuristic where authors can take controls if the heuristic goes wrong<br>
&lt;emilio> florian: which is what has happened in the TV world<br>
