Interesting. The description of vi editing mode under the description of
`sh' contains no corresponding text and no reference to the `vi'
description defining it.  There is no distinction made depending on when
characters were entered into the "current command line", and the
description of input mode says only:

"While in insert mode, any character typed shall be inserted in the current
command line, unless it is from the following set."
