The obvious solution would be just contentEditable, that's the only
logical thing to be brought into a standard,  mozilla and safari
taking the defacto standard that exists and implementing it is
appropriate, inventing their own extensions when sensible stable
proprietary ones exist is even worse than the W3C not stanrdardising
it.   That is of course assuming there's nothing seriously wrong with
the proprietary version, and I really don't think this is the case
with contentEditable.
