Despite their generic names, it seems that ElementHelper::editableSiteIdsForElement and craft\base\Element::getIsEditable are really only concerned with the double-click for HUD edit functionality.

Not knowing this, I ran into trouble when I tried to use it on an element such as MatrixBlock, which despite logically being "editable", MatrixBlock::getIsEditable is false.

To get around this, I had to make a special case for different element types:

What would be ideal is if ElementHelper::editableSiteIdsForElement worked on any element type, letting you know which sites the user had permissions to edit the given element.

For this to work with third party plugins, etc. – it would probably make sense to require elements to implement a getIsEditable.

MatrixBlock might then have something like this:

    public function getIsEditable(): bool
        return $this->owner->getIsEditable();
