I've made a workaround for all browsers by reimplementing "unfocus steps" logic
in JS.

I'd really like to fill the gaps in my education, as I can't see the missing
parts. =) On the other side the spec will be useless if there won't be a person
who can read correct English. I know that it is better is spec is concise, but
you may be compressing the text of spec too much, throwing out user stories on
the way. But user stories help to decompress the sense much faster. Maybe they
still can be attached externally.
