In HTML5, focus() and blur() are now defined on HTMLElement instead of
being restricted to specific form elements.
In Web Forms 2.0, the autofocus attribute is defined for "any form
control (except hidden and output controls)". It seems like it would
make more sense to allow autofocus to be on any HTMLElement, and have
it follow the same focusable rules that focus() follows.
