And, nicely, actually requires no new logic or state; the browser
already knows when it's showing a focus ring.

That's what I'm discussing with Alice and Brian.  I'm currently of the
opinion that, with the ability to customize how an element deals with
focus rings, and possible better default behavior in some cases, we
won't need anything further; they're currently thinking about
use-cases and other possibilities that will require more
functionality.
