I found out, that InputParts are Parts with a "dirtyable" Flag?
What is the InputURI intended to be used for in InputParts?

MPart also has a dirty because they both derive from MDirtyable.
InputParts are planned to be used when we natively implement editors in
e4, so it will point to a resource e.g.
resource://myproject/build.properties, mydb://person_table?p_id=10

So InputParts are used to implement editors, which are dirtyable?
And InputURI points to the resource, where the Editor data will be stored? (e.g a database-table pointer mydb://person_table?p_id=10)

Right but like I said currently we have not implemented native editor
support yet, what we miss is an MEditorDescriptor to replace the 3.x
extension point.

I still have it on my to do list for 4.3 and really hope I manage to
come up with a proposal but that heavily depends on the time I can spend
on it and at the moment other things are more important to me.

I'm not sure on your dirtyable comment because MInputPart inherits from
MPart which mixes in MDirtyable, so any part in the system is dirtyable ;-)
