yoichio has just created a new issue for 

== [css-ui-4][user-select] user-select:all and contenteditable ==

if we have
`<div contenteditable style="user-select:all;">foobar</div>`,
how focus and caret should work?

Can user put a caret inside the text or not?
If can, shift+arrow still selects all? It may be annoying.

For now, Firefox supports as `-moz-user-select:all` but it behaves 
very weird: 
user can put a caret only on the head of text and can input characters
 but can't move caret.

Chrome starts to support `-webkit-user-select:all` in the canary 
channel but user can't focus because Chrome interprets 
`user-select:all` as user can't put focus and extent into the element.
