[Bug 14455] 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

This doesn't seem like a strong enough use-case to justify a new mode for
contenteditable at this point.  There are lots of other things that are much
more important.  Also, the mobile browser could be smart enough to not pop up
the virtual keyboard if you're making a selection, dragging something, etc.,
and we don't need to change the spec for that.

Thanks for your suggestion, though.  Please reopen if you think there's
something I've missed.
