                    non-HTML elements.  If an HTML element has
                    contenteditable=true and its parent is a non-HTML
                    element, is the HTML element an editing host?  (The
                    spec implies no, which seems wrong.)  If an HTML

Comment:
It's not so clear how editability interacts with non-HTML elements.  If an
HTML element has contenteditable=true and its parent is a non-HTML element, is
the HTML element an editing host?  (The spec implies no, which seems wrong.) 
If an HTML element is editable and it has a child element that's not an HTML
element, is that child editable?  (Spec implies no, but that also seems
wrong.)  What happens if a non-HTML element has an HTML contenteditable
attribute?  (Spec implies it does nothing, including that it doesn't make
descendant HTML elements editable, which seems wrong.)    How about you make
editability a property of all elements, not just HTML elements?
