Looking for a better/shorter name than "Active Descendant" especially since it doesn't have to be a descendant. Current patch is using the UI String "Focus Pointer" but I'm very open to suggestions if you think of something better.

Attached to so UI. Inspector is focused on the Facebook search combo box. Focus pointer (active descendant) hovered in the sidebar so the overlay is on the selected search suggestion. 
(Note one site author error is visible. The "Owns" pointer is a div with no defined role, when combobox expects @aria-owns to point to the listbox.)

Potential UI String alternatives to "Focus Pointer": Focus Point, Acting Focus, Focus Proxy, Proxy Focus, Pseudo-Focus, Focus Redirect.
Comment 6 James Craig 2014-03-25 01:03:59 PDT
Acting Focus and Focus Proxy are my top choices atm.

I think Active Descendant is fine, since it matches the ARIA wording.

New patch uses "Shared Focus" to match the desktop terminology.
