[whatwg] Should a textarea outside of a document be immutable?

According to the HTML specifications, a textarea is mutable "if it is
neither disabled nor has a readonly attribute specified". Which means
that a textarea outside of a document is mutable. This is not the case
for an input element.
I was wondering why there is this difference in behavior here between
those two elements. I believe both elements should be immutable when
outside of a document.
