I haven’t yet looked at your proposal in detail, but I just wanted to
point out that Gecko has a prefixed property that allows you to control
selectability of text:

  https://developer.mozilla.org/en/CSS/-moz-user-select

There’s -webkit-user-select too.  The user-select property was in an old
draft of the CSS UI specification.  I think it would be a good idea to
raise this in the CSS WG so that it can be standardized.
