The only way to make this work is with JS manipulation. I guess we can do something with touch start and remove the readonly attribute temporarily. But really, this seems like something that should be fixed at the OS level.

Would replacing the textarea with a div if the page is protected work? This would be cleaner than manipulating the DOM in JS IMO.
