Thanks for the minutes.

In the minutes you say:

"we can tell authors that if they want to make RTE accessible in
canvas you need to use the aria markup for selection and invalid
content vs. contenteditable sections
... where we can't get the API in place to expose grammar and spelling errors"

and

"we can get selection and caret information from text fields albeit IE
and the rest of industry are inconsistent"

Why do we need to introduce markup for selection? What problem are you
trying to solve, how would selection markup solve it, why can the
existing selection APIs not solve it, and if they can't, why can't
they be improved to solve it?
