There are multiple parts for such support indeed, which has to do with
different requirements for rendering, editing and DOM APIs. See e.g.
iteration support in Position and VisiblePosition.

Of course, "supported" never means "absolutely bug-free" - no implementation
of text rendering, and probably not even any spec works perfectly for all
scripts and all use cases.
