1. subdom content should not be rendered at all. It has no visual location.
2. We need the new API Frank has created to provide the location of content
in the subdom. If we need finer granularity on individual characters we
will deal with that when we can get consensus on rich text editing. We
don't have that at this point.

I think we are jumping the gun trying to address the complex case right
now.
