I was wondering if WebKit as a project would be interested in having
overtype mode support for editable content. This in indeed the mode in
which the cursor, when typing, overwrites any text that is present on
and after its current location [1].

Looks like something like that could be useful to implement online
editing tools. Just for reference, both IE and Opera support it while in
Firefox the bug was closed as WONTFIX [2] after a lot of discussion.
