Steps to reproduce

There is a spec proposal to disable automatic scroll into view on Element.focus().

Here is the summary of current situation: https://github.com/whatwg/html/pull/2787#issuecomment-338193107

The new dictionary type “FocusOptions” with the “preventScroll" dictionary member is introduced.

The IDL of Element.focus() will change to:

dictionary FocusOptions {
boolean preventScroll = false;
void focus(optional FocusOptions options);

If preventScroll is omitted or false, then the element will be scrolled into view with UA-defined manners.
Otherwise, it disables scrolling triggered by focus().
