Sam, Ian,

This is the change based on what I believe to be the chairs decision with a
bug correction to ensure the blink rate returns the appropriate data time
as specified by WebIDL. It preserves canDrawCustom and does not apply the
baseline change but incorporates the other changes in our change proposal.

Applying the decision as stated and reopening the issue based on new

The decision is clear here: "The change to remove the canDrawCustom
parameter from drawFocusRing is not adopted."

Those changes certainly are clear.

Ian: what is the problem here?
