Doesn't that require another buffer that has the same memory size as the
canvas? Or did you mean that it draws the focus ring on top right after the
canvas backing store is composited?
drawSystemFocusRing would be dropped with this proposal, right?

I'm unsure what you mean. could you rephrase?

My patch looks like this:
GraphicsContext* c = drawingContext();
c->drawFocusRing(m_path, 1, 1, RenderTheme::focusRingColor());
Should that use the focus ring color and style that the user picked?
