coming back on this CfC and my last comment: my biggest question would be WHY a focus indicator MUST be bigger than others (based on touch target)?

It just doesn't make sense if we compare them to other UICs and their indicator:


IF a focus indicator is enough, wouldn't this be enough in other cases too on the same page?

SO, shouldn't a clear focus indicator not be enough to be based on a specific size (as we have for AAA touch target)?

A clear focus indicator is a clear focus indicator, no matter how big the target area is.

All bullets have to be true, so this is in combination with the 2nd.
(https://raw.githack.com/w3c/wcag/wcag22-focus-visible-enhanced/understanding/22/focus-visible-enhanced.html )

I.e. the change of contrast has to be there (2nd bullet). *Then* it has to contrast with its adjacent colors *or* be thicker.

>    I'm assuming this is supposedly then covered by the following note

No, the note is for the 2nd bullet, although it hasn't changed since the third was added. Perhaps we need to make the note more specifically for the 2nd bullet then?

"E.g. Note: A focus indicator that is larger than the minimum area may have parts that do not meet the 3:1 focus contrast requirement, as long as an area equal to the minimum does meet the contrast ratio."
