When you are building applications you need script anyway. For most 
things with
regard to contentEditable it is almost like a requirement. Therefore having
some additional native markup just for submission does not really make sense.

Note that requiring scripting for applications should not really be an issue.

I suggest we await some implementation feedback from other browser vendors and
eventually from developers who have actually used it. What I have heard so far
about contentEditable from people using it to build applications with is not
that they want to have native submission controls. They would like more 
than they can get in Internet Explorer and less to clean up.
