Ehsan pointed out that it doesn't make any sense to let the user edit SVG or
MathML unless the browser has a special editor for them.  We should make only
HTML elements editable/editing hosts for now.  Embedded SVG/MathML should be
treated as opaque, like an <img>.  This probably means the root node of the
foreign content does need to be editable, so we know we can delete it, but we
don't want to touch any of its descendants.
