They do apply to editable areas and form controls, as well. However, I am
not aware of any changes since Safari 3 that should affect input methods.

Talking specifically about this issue, I'm not sure if it's a bug. Any
part of an HTML document can become editable at any point, it doesn't split
the document into multiple TSMDocuments. Consider an edge case with several
nested contenteditable DIVs - it'd be hard to maintain a TSMDocument for
It looks like a reasonable compromise to have a single document, and
return an error when an IM tries to change non-editable content.
