Inline Edit: changing focus cancels edit?

Hi, Allison and Daphne,

I wanted to double-check one of the interactions on the inline editor,  
to make sure we've got it right.

The current interaction in question is this:
    The only way to save an edit is to press Enter.

i.e. if you're editing a field and you move focus away from the field  
by pressing Tab of clicking on something else, any changes to the  
field are lost.

You can experiment with this on

So the question is: Is it correct that tabbing away or clicking  
elsewhere causes changes to be lost?
