> Also to add to the wide interpretation is the fact, as Jon Avila has noted… that we already have an existing Failure Technique of not setting background when foreground is set and vice versa

The failure technique references foreground and background colours, but focus isn’t set by the foreground color.

We could take that as a principle, but we’d need to extend or add to that technique.

...so I will additionally argue that the wide interpretation going forward would be consistent with prior and existing guidance.

But inconsistent with other guidance around browser defaults.

As I said in the call, I’d like to put this specific question to survey with the wider group, so this is refining the question.
