At the heart of this issue is the question:  What would one expect to do 
with layout tools while in a script editor?

That an IDE would dynamically provide progressive disclosure of features 
specific to the task at hand isn't a bad thing, IMO.

But most importantly, as you noted, if it does it must do so reliably.

I appreciate your contribution to the RQCC on this.  If I used Rev's 
script editor I'd toss a few votes toward it, but alas my 100 votes are 
allocated to things I need in my own workflow.  Just the same, this type 
of reliability is so important (scripting being as central to the user 
experience in Rev as it is), I would encourage anyone affected by this 
to consider adding a vote for it.
