It's the 'software must provide' bit that is the problem.
Its ambiguous whether there is an implied [all] in there.
I disagree that all apps can ignore it, the way i wrote it is in two parts:
Part 2 is : Application software that provides user interface objects must either use the focus mode provided by the platform software or provide such a mode directly"
Where does it say, or not do anything at all?

The "one mode that" language already allows you to use system or platform capabilities to meet it. If the platform doesn't have them though, then the app inherits the responsibility.
The way you wrote it - all apps can just ignore the provision since it is restricted to the platform - even if the platform isn't providing the focus cursor.
