Of course, the problem is that it IS down to the browser whether 
something passes or fails otherwise. And then, you'd have define clearly 
which browsers to target/test in. Where do you draw the line? What if in 
one browser, by default, the contrast of the focus indication is too 
low, but in all others it's fine out of the box? Is that a fail, 
dependent on the market share of the browser?

This is the sort of thing that a best practice is much better suited to 
tackle than a hard binary pass/fail, I'd say.
