Regarding Caret tracking:

Here's some work on caret position in contentEditable div:
http://niichavo.wordpress.com/2009/01/06/contentEditable-div-cursor-position/

I don't know if it applies to caret browsing mode. I think it does, in 
Firefox, but I don't know.

...

I understand there's concern about introducing IAccessibleText hooks to 
Canvas.
That's not actually what we're looking to do.

We're looking at mapping directly to the aria caret role, 
"ROLE_SYSTEM_CARET",
which is really a better way to look at it than IAccessibleText.

setCaretSelectionRect(element, ..)
<mark role="caret" style="position: absolute...;"></mark>

Canvas 2D may not the right place for the method. The method has a clean 
mapping to the MS Accessibility caret role,
and can be implemented with minimal cost to vendors.
