This is all defined in detail in the HTML editing spec.  The "additional
requirements" section specifies the behavior for Enter, Shift-Enter (or
platform equivalent), Backspace, Delete, and typing text:

The detailed requirements for backspace are here:

http://aryeh.name/spec/editing/editing.html#the-delete-command

Previously, they followed all non-IE browsers in that backspacing after a link
doesn't unlink it.  On consideration, though, the IE behavior is more useful,
and also matches Word 2007, so I changed the spec to match it:

Thanks for the feedback.  My current understanding is this will stay a separate
spec and not be incorporated into HTML5, per bug 13423 and bug 13425, but I'll
wait for Hixie to confirm that before I resolve this.
