One use case is manipulating content in a contenteditable area, e.g. in
a Rich text editor. A JS-based online editor such as TinyMCE or KTML may
want to offer some kind of GUI for alternative sources.
I am not sure whether this is a very important use case, as authors of
online editors are usually JS experts and capable of writing complex
string operations, too; but I assume the use case is at least valid.
