This was a design decision at the time, but I think it should be revisited.  

One reason that I think it would be reasonable to just go ahead and make links
and buttons mouse focusable is that we already added code to blur the existing
focused element when you click on objects like buttons and links.  Thus the
main OS advantage (being able to click on things without losing your current
focus) has been lost.

I think basically we should just give up and resign ourselves to having
compatibility with Windows regarding mouse focusability.  For keyboard
focusability we can continue to be a little different (obeying the keyboard
access mode + the Safari pref with the SELECT exception).
