Although such a selection method would be convenient, I think it makes
more sense to specify such exceptions on the elements themselves,
removing the need to add a new attribute. For instance,

<div contenteditable="true">
  <a href="#header" contenteditable="false">Header</a>
  <a href="#footer">Footer</a>

In this case the first link would be manipulated as an unbreakable
unit inside the div.
