When changing the workspace's pane configuration, the PaneContainer needs to sometimes remove intermediate PaneAxis objects from the DOM. When it does this, it tries to restore focus to the previously-focused node.

This stopped working for text editors when we removed the shadow DOM because when a text editor is focused, it transfers focus to its hidden input element. This hidden input element was destroyed and re-created every time the editor was detached and re-attached.

This PR solves that problem by making the TextEditorElement keep a long-lived reference to a hidden input element, and re-using that same hidden input element every time it is attached to the DOM.
