Not exactly true. The default button works regardless of focus.
Try for example the SVN rename dialog. The focus is in the text field (Edit)
but enter still triggers the default button.
The very purpose of the default button is to work regardless of focus.

If there is a conflict with some other GUI element, then the OK button
should not be marked as the default (to not confuse the user who expects it
to work).
