I have a vague recollection that you're supposed to be able to switch
off anything that blinks altogether, too, in which case it would be
impossible to tell if the text box had focus.  But I may just be making
that up, I don't have the 508 doc to hand!

My guess would be that text fields need the same sort of focus
indication as lists-- which as you'll recall from my example at GUADEC
is often currently "none", but I'm sure you've done something about
that, right?  :o)
