As mentioned in comment 12, WebKit implements the proposed behavior, and it
seems reasonable to me. A script can detect direction for <div contenteditable>
via DOM attributes (although not uniformly across browsers), so having such a
way for input and contenteditable only makes sense.

Firing oninput would seem strange though (I don't see any difference with e.g.
changing style to bold in contenteditable).
