[Bug 13423] Remove the Editing APIs section. It's extremely incomplete and contradicts my editing spec on a lot of points, so it will confuse implementers.

WG Member here. If the existing text is a subset of what is being implemented,
that's no different to the rest of the frozen W3C spec. But if it contradicts
what is being implemented to the extent that clientside code written against
the spec will fail, that will cause authors confusion and users may experience
breakage. (Implementor feedback would be valuable as to which is the case
here.)

I don't think we should leave such contradictions in the spec. I'm ambivalent
about whether that's corrected by fixing the HTML draft itself, by splitting it
out into a second HTML WG document, or by making it a Webapps responsibility.
Our WG charter suggests any of these options would be fine, but editing APIs
were supposed to be one of our deliverables.

Worst case scenario: if nobody volunteers to maintain this text within the W3C
space, I'd still rather we remove the text containing the contradictions.

Just my 2 cents.
