Yeah, it was probably a bad idea anyway. I just thought it would be 
consistent if editing always happened on element contents rather than on 
an attribute value. Especially in the case of textarea it seems a little 
unintuitive that it's the contents of the value attribute that is 
edited, rather than the element contents. But it would probably be a 
mess to try to change now.
