Agreed on all points, FWIW.  I'm not totally sure what the most
sensible behavior is for backspacing into a non-editable element is,
but selecting is a reasonable idea that the spec already recommends
for tables (although I don't think anyone implements that point last I
checked).  It makes it clear that the next backspace will delete the
whole thing, which would otherwise be very surprising -- e.g., suppose
it were a simple run of text that wasn't visually distinguishable from
the surrounding editable content.
