Options are good.  I'm wondering if perhaps we could embrace that more 

The SE is a very expensive component to maintain.  If we could replace 
it with a third-party editor, and put a fraction of the time we used to 
spend maintaining and enhancing the SE into providing a mechanism to use 
any editor the user prefers, we'd have a better editor in the box and 
vast options for using other editors, and save development expense along 
the way.
