[Bug 14455] New: When tapping within a contenteditable, mobile browsers display a VKB that hogs the screen. But what if users don't want to enter any new text? They might instead make a selection, copy it, drag to move it, format it, or paste in something else. Ideally

           Summary: When tapping within a contenteditable, mobile browsers
                    display a VKB that hogs the screen. But what if users
                    don't want to enter any new text?  They might instead
                    make a selection, copy it, drag to move it, format it,
                    or paste in something else.  Ideally

Comment:
When tapping within a contenteditable, mobile browsers display a VKB that hogs
the screen. But what if users don't want to enter any new text?  They might
instead make a selection, copy it, drag to move it, format it, or paste in
something else.  Ideally rather than boolean, contenteditable should account
for edits that don't require text input.
