I thought Firefox had supported the real outline property for a while  

Anyway - please don't do that. The point of having the focused  
element indicated is that people who depend on it (i.e. anyone who  
navigates using the keyboard) can see what they are "pointing" at.  
Removing the focus marker removes vital information.

(And when you see the focus marker on every site you visit, it  
doesn't annoy).
