They seem no less editable than, say, an editable <img> or <hr> or whatever. 
You should be able to delete them or move them around.  (The editing spec
doesn't yet define this, but at the face-to-face we agreed that form stuff
should be meaningfully editable: the user should be able to edit the values and
so on.  This allows form-editing apps.  If authors want an input to be
non-editable and thus behave like an actual input, they can specify
contenteditable=false.)
