           Summary: Moving the caret with the keyboard
           Product: HTML WG

The sections under 7.5.1 (Move the Caret and Change the selection -
http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/WD-html5-20110525/editing.html#user-editing-actions)
provide this as a vague indication of potential keyboard support:

“This could be triggered as the default action of keydown events with various
key identifiers and as the default action of mousedown events.”

It is desirable to make this more explicit, so UA's are aware that support for
interaction without a mouse is a requirement.
