The following part of the charter does make the HTML Editing APIs in 
scope for WebApps:

[[
http://www.w3.org/2010/webapps/charter/#others

Specifically, because of the close relationship of the WebApps WG and 
the HTML WG in terms of participants, market, and community, the WebApps 
WG may opt to take on a limited number of specifications which were 
initially part of the HTML5 specification that have been split off for 
more general use with other languages.
]]

My summary is: although HTML Editing APIs is in scope for WebApps, and 
we agreed to use public-webapps for related discussions [1], given no 
one has agreed to actively drive the spec in WebApps, we will not 
include it as an explicit deliverable in WebApps' charter update. If 
anyone disagrees with this summary, please speak up.
