Posting in the Magento forums has been disabled pending the implementation of a new and improved forum solution which should better serve the community.

No editor should be added to the core of Magento. Only via plugin, cause everyone has their own choice of what they use. Some like tinymce others like fckeditor etc.
No need to talk about which is better, have a neutral stance and create a sample editor plugin that can be used as a guideline for plugin editors.
