Indeed. However, this seems like a semantic thing, not a stylistic thing. 
You wouldn't want the document to only be editable if it was styled, for

IE invented contentEditable for doing something similar to what you 
describe, btw. (contentEditable is being specified in the WHATWG specs: that it can be more interoperably implemented in other UAs.)
