IE5 had <richedit>, IIRC. Microsoft dropped it. Do we know why? It would be
useful to find out what their reasoning was, to make sure we didn't make the
same mistake.

In the meantime, I'm going to mark this LATER since it's a _major_ new feature
and now isn't a particularly convenient time to be adding new features.

Status: Partially Accepted
Change Description: none yet
Rationale: We should wait for implementations to catch up before adding new
features, especially in the space of rich text editing where there's a lot of
work to be done just in getting the existing features interoperably
implemented.
