As far as I can tell there are no Web contents that depend on these events, and these events are primarily used to notify input/textarea of text insertion, paste, etc...

It seems like we should be able to kill these events or at least make them invisible from scripts.

Sounds good to me.

Does this mean to remove files BeforeTextInsertedEvent.* as well? Just working on it.

I just sent an intent to remove these non-standard editing related events from Chromium: https://groups.google.com/a/chromium.org/g/blink-dev/c/QlEJAuX9pGk/m/a9c_hmgdAgAJ
Could you please let us know if there are any plans on working on this bug?

I don't think we have any immediate plans but I think we should try to get rid of these.
