           Summary: document.activeElement can change unexpectedly while
                    typing in VE editor
           Product: VisualEditor
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: ContentEditable
    Classification: Unclassified
   Mobile Platform: ---

After observing some strange results from an automated Ruby test for cursor
movement in the Visual Editor CE surface, we did some digging, and it appears
that while a user is typing away happily and making and edit, the
document.activeElement flip-flop several times.  

I'm assuming this is unintentional behavior, thus the bug ticket.

Repro steps:

1)  Visit this page:
2)  Click into VE editing mode.
3)  With cursor placed immediately in front of the letter "a" in the word
"after", press the right arrow key several times in succession. 
4)  When your right-arrow-clicking brings you to the reference, the
document.activeElement switches from "ve-ce-documentNode ve-ce-branchNode
noime" to "ve-ce-surface-paste"

I'm assuming that when the user is typing in the "editing box", the
document.activeElement should not be changing.
