The former. Ins and del were added to html4 and released in a REC in
1997. They were never implemented in a wysiwyg editor because they
raise model issues in HTML. The proposal is to have in HTML a solution
that covers all the cases editors need (including wysiwyg editors)
at the cheapest price.

I agree matching OOXML/ODF features is another story.

It's a compromise here. We can have something that works and offers
the minimal control 95% of people need. I don't suggest diving into
the full complexity of document workflow before achieving that basic
