You didn't respond to most of my comment. You just said that flattening

This text is part of "10.13 Text selection and clipboard operations". I
don't see how it belongs there, it does not discuss text selection in
any way. From the text above I also don't understand when this would
occur, when is "the text of an editable element" "edited"? Please use
more appropriate language and put this text in a section it belongs to.
