I don't think it's worth having code changes because of this one. In fact, using contenteditable in form fields is a very uncommon practice. So, let's wait for some one coming with this need from the real world.

Additionally, this issue also impacts <input> elements.

Even when considering the fix needed, I would make it inside the protectReadOnly and unprotectReadyOnly functions directly, instead of bringing overhead to processor.

It would be a waste of time and unnecessary code bloating.
