Cursor blinking in TextView

When TextView (Gtk4) is not editable (editable property set to False) the cursor inside view is not blinking.
Why so?
It is observed in Gtk4 Demo app. In section TextView->Hypertext the cursor is blinking (view is editable) and in section TextView->Markup the cursor is not blinking (view is not editable)

This is intentional, and it makes sense to me. A blinking cursor implies waiting for input.

The core behavior dates back to 2005: Don't blink the cursor if the text view is not editable. (50ba0e23) · Commits · GNOME / gtk · GitLab

Oh. I’ve got it, thank you!
