[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.

And I'm willing to issue a formal objection if this proceeds without a clear
understanding of what it means to take something from the Rec track and put it
into the W3C's new incubator effort.

No, I'm sure you're more than aware of your work obligations. And that you
exercise your obligations with due diligence and excellent technical ability. 

My main concern is that if there's going to continue being an issue about
copyright and patent for all the work you do for Google, then there will
continue to be a problem with any work you do within the W3C. 

I'm not speaking for the W3C in this, but as a member of the web community. Are
we going to have problems implementing anything you help spec? Are we going to
have issues with Google at some time in the future?
