So if that is the only use case, probably not worth to add anything to make the platform more complicated. Especially since StaticRange API might be good for some script library, but not for some other.

The idea is to return this new StaticRange object in `InputEvent` interface's `targetRanges` IDL attribute, and let Web apps hold onto them without incurring the cost of constant updates.
