User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2b4) Gecko/20091124 Firefox/3.6b4 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)
Build Identifier: 

Selecting text and a link and then attempting to drag it and drop it elsewhere in the page results in a move of only the text nodes.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use firebug or similar to set the contenteditable attribute of the body to true.
2. Select part of the page, including a link, mathml, svg, or anything besides just plain text.
3. Drag the selection somewhere else in the page and drop.
Actual Results:  
Only the text is moved.

Expected Results:  
The nodes should move... that is, if dragging some text and a link to a new location, both the text and the fact that it is a link should move.

Seems XHTML related.
