            Bug ID: 23980
           Summary: drawSystemFocusRing and drawCustomFocusRing are poorly
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT

A.  drawSystemFocusRing and drawCustomFocusRing don't necessarily draw a ring.
This may be just terminology. How does one call the drawing to indicate a focus

 B. If the element isn't in focus, they don't draw anything at all. If the
element is in focus, it won't be drawn if the user hasn't requested a
particular focus ring (and the element doesn't usually have a focus ring for
drawSystemFocusRing). In other words, it's user and platform dependent whether
a focus ring is drawn or not. Those functions are request to the user agent
that may be fulfilled or not.

What would you call it if it never draws, but just notifies the UI? I think
we could call it notifyFocusRingPath or something like that.
