[whatwg] [notifications][editorial] tweaking the "Activating a notification" window.focus() note

In ยง4.6 Activating a notification, there's a note that currently reads

    "User agents are strongly encouraged to make window.focus() work
    from within the event listener for the event named click as a means
    of focusing the browsing context related to the notification."

This note assumes that the UA doesn't automatically focus the browsing
context when a notification is activated. (Safari on OS X is one example
of a UA which does this.) The note should be adjusted so that readers
understand that calling window.focus() may not be necessary on some
combinations of UA and system notification service.
