[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.

I definitely agree with separating out the editing API from HTML5, and perhaps
publishing it as another document in the HTML WG. But completely taking it out
of the group, and off the Rec track...this move just doesn't make sense.
