The CSS Working Group just discussed `[css-pseudo-4] painting of the cursor and the caret with highlight pseudos`, and agreed to the following:

* `RESOLVED: drop caret-color and cursor`

<details><summary>The full IRC log of that discussion</summary>
&lt;dael> Topic: [css-pseudo-4] painting of the cursor and the caret with highlight pseudos<br>
&lt;dael> github: https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/4100<br>
&lt;GameMaker> q+<br>
&lt;dael> fantasai: florian asked hwat happened with multi highlights and different caret values. Which one wins. top or top non-auto. Top most non-auto makes more sense I think but I don't know. Is anyone planning to impl these properties?<br>
&lt;castastrophe> Sorry, I need to drop<br>
&lt;dael> Rossen_: Regardless of plan to impl we should be able to define expected behavior. If top-most non-auto makes most sense we can resolve and when people impl if it's not the right choice we can discuss again then<br>
&lt;dael> florian: Alternative could be if no one thinks this is good to impl we could drop from list of elements that apply to this psedo element. These were added b/c not layout effecting. But if there's no interest we could drop them.<br>
&lt;dael> Rossen_: CHoices are drop it or top-most non-auto<br>
&lt;Rossen_> q?<br>
&lt;dael> GameMaker: I wasn't on the call but I recall reading notes about issues with this and grammar and auto-spell check b/c loading resources could be a security issue<br>
&lt;Rossen_> ack GameMaker<br>
&lt;dael> GameMaker: Maybe didn't understand discussion, but thinking that could be a reason to drop. In my impl I haven't looked at doing cursor or caret. Definitely would be more complicated to do. I'm in favor of just dropping cursor and caret<br>
&lt;tantek> +1 to dropping. seems to add complexity for theoretical reasons<br>
&lt;dael> Rossen_: Anyone want to keep those?<br>
&lt;dael> florian: Not a strong want but it seems security only applied to one of the two. Caret color won't load resources<br>
&lt;dael> fantasai: But if no one wants to impl and there's no strong usecase we should drop<br>
&lt;tantek> I'd be in favor of only reconsidering them if an implementor felt compelled to try implementing it (for whatever reason)<br>
&lt;dael> Rossen_: Objections to dropping caret-color and cursor?<br>
&lt;dael> RESOLVED: drop caret-color and cursor<br>
