Focus - why buttons not focussable?

Dear all

I'm struggling to understand why you would want Buttons in an exemplary Keypad to be set non-focussable, as in example WIDGET_NumPad where BUTTON_SetFocussable(hItem, 0)? What's the use of focusability in general and why it doesn't suit in this particular case? Wouldn't it be easier if you had known that the user has focused exactly on a given button?

The buttons are not focusable to make sure the EDIT widgets don't lose their focus.

If they were focusable you had to either click the EDIT widget after each button press or set the fpcus back to the EDIT widget in your code.
