"Focus" should be pulled from 4.1

Description

With respect, I'm aware of the challenges the Focus project has gone through in this cycle, and am aligned with the eventual goal of making the editor experience as distraction-free as possible. However, given the UX challenges I'd argue it still has, I propose it be pulled from 4.1.

Consider these two screenshots:

  1. Pre-4.1 Distraction-Free Writing: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/4k9wqg0ycipg0hf/2014-12-10%20at%201.44%20PM%20%281%29.png?dl=0
  2. 4.1's proposed "Focus": https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/12mq4fyht1yth97/2014-12-10%20at%201.44%20PM.png?dl=0

The former is centered, and has consistent margins. The latter is off-center, with inconsistent margins.

As someone who uses DFW on a semi-regular basis for longer blog posts, "Focus" is far more of a jarring writing experience, and not an improvement over Distraction-Free Writing.
