In A, the inner editable text node is detached while the placeholder is visible.  So we can't do anything for editing.

I'm trying B again.  If we use position:absolute for the placeholder node, it's difficult to keep the correct position when the <input> is moved. If we use position:relative/static, <input> secures the intrinsic block for the placeholder node.  I found a way to resolve this issue and minimize custom layout code.
