Hi all,

I have a patch to add selectionDirection property on HTMLInputElement and
HTMLTextAreaElement on https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=60403.

The purpose of this property is to let websites control base and extent of
selection.  The property has been added to the HTML5 spec section
and an extensive discussion about this
been done on whatwg.  Given the discussion took place on whatwg and how
simple this API is, I consider it to be a stable API.
