HTML currently says UAs should allow the following:

"""
Edit form controls nested inside editing hosts
When an editable form control is edited, the changes must be reflected in both
its current value and its default value. For input elements this means updating
the defaultValue IDL attribute as well as the value IDL attribute; for select
elements it means updating the option elements' defaultSelected IDL attribute
as well as the selected IDL attribute; for textarea elements this means
updating the defaultValue IDL attribute as well as the value IDL attribute.
(Updating the default* IDL attributes causes content attributes to be updated
as well.)
"""

At the face-to-face, we agreed that this is more or less how form elements
should behave in contenteditable.  This needs to be specced in more detail.
