Right now relatedTarget is specced as being null on blur/focus. Why don't these
just match focusout/focusin?

Doing some spec archaeology, it looks like relatedTarget was specced as having
the same value as target on blur/focus and then set to null in response to

It seems to me that there's no downside to making relatedTarget do the same
thing on focus/blur that is does on focusout/focusin respectively. From a web
developers perspective, the only difference should be whether the event bubbles
or not and whether it fires before/after focus has shifted.

I know this is late in the cycle, but I just noticed this and this seems
reasonable to include in the level 3 version of this spec.
