Focus rings are usually larger than the control they surround. How is the developer suppose to know the pixel padding needed for each platform's focus ring? Guess and hope for the best?

Would drawing the system focus ring taint the canvas pixels? (Drawing form controls into canvas via SVG images and <foreignObject> has been considered taint worthy because it could leak the user's UI theme.)
