Sorry, re-reading this I see more what you're getting at, and I'd say I 
agree that sites that *don't* set explicit focus styles and rely on 
browsers are, essentially, offloading that particular behavior to 
browsers, and that that's not an ideal state of affairs.

In fact, I later remembered this issue I filed against WCAG 2.0 
https://github.com/w3c/wcag/issues/302 (about the handwavy absence of 
defining what a "visible" focus indication is), and note Alastair's 
comment that this would in fact be addressed by the new SC: "The 
interactive components contrast SC is intended to cover focus 
indicators." https://github.com/w3c/wcag/issues/302#issuecomment-326996680
