I believe that having a specialised
EventHandler::handleKeyboardSelectionMovement() for this isn't the way to go.
The code here currently doesn't support Ctrl, for example, to move selections
at word granularity. It would be more consistent to reuse the existing
SelectionController logic used for editable content.

A colleague has suggested that it might be easier to implement this by enabling
content editing and disallowing modifications, and then fixing any bad
interactions from there.

Chris, could you describe some of the thinking behind the way r33520 is
implemented? It may be that you're following a Mac convention for non-editable
selection modification which I'm not familar with. Are the limitations
intentional or are they missing because the feature is WIP?
