Besides your other points I think it would also be important to specify 
the content model the element can have and the possibility to restrict 
this content model.

For example, you could allow any element that is allowed as a child of 
the particular element that has contentEditable set, but there should be 
a way to exclude certain elements (and perhaps attributes) if you don't 
want those.

  <em contentEditable="true" exclude="a em strong span">
