Pasting into an Hx element doens't just insert the text but instead splits the
element at the insertion point and puts a new element (of the same type) with
the pasted text between the now-split portions of the original element.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. New composer window
2. Set style to Heading 1
3. Type "This is a test" + Enter
4. Set style (of second para) to Heading 1
5. Type "This is another test" + Enter
6. Double-click on "another" to select "another " [trailing space intentional]
7. Type Ctrl+X to cut.
8. Double-click on "a" (in para 1) to select "a "
9. Type Ctrl+V to paste.

Actual Results:  
The doc had this structure:

<h1>This is </h1>
<h1>another </h1>
<h1>This is test<br>

Expected Results:  
<h1>This is another test</h1>
<h1>This is test<br>

This doesn't seem to happen with Body, Paragraph, and Address styles, but it
does happen with other Hx styles.
