With <text editable="true">Hi <tspan class="name">Jim</tspan>!</text>
we currently plan to flatten everything into a single node (and thus
lose the styling information).

Yes, this is nasty, but the feature is really for simple text editing,
not complex text editing (think HTML <input type="text">).

So, it <flowRoot> should follow the same pattern.

Hmmmm, hadn't thought of that. I guess they could catch the focus
event and fire an animation which sets the style.
