The GNOME Shell magnifier currently relies on Orca to track the current
keyboard focus, scrolling the view of the magnified content to include
the focused UI element or caret position. This is acceptable for the
very few users who require both a screen reader and screen magnifier
simultaneously. However, for the majority of magnifier users, who want
to use only a magnifier, it is overkill to launch a screen reader as
well. The shell should have its own focus tracking mechanism.

Will this focus tracking mechanism be used for the shell OSK as well ?

Yes, in the sense that the mechanism is neutral with respect to who can use it. So, it's not specific to the magnifier; the magnifier is but one of its "users".
