I myself am more a fan of tinymce [1], but the issue is more general
weather we should integrate a wysiwyg editor.

When the content is HTML I immediately agree that a wysiwyg editor is
nice to have, however we must ensure that it does not break other types
of content.
One additional objection is that these editors are generally a lot
slower that a plain text-area.

It should therefore be configurable weather it is used at all.
Even better would be to make it configurable per mime-type.

One additional thing I like which the Drupal wysiwyg API [2] has
included is a simple "Disable rich-text" link below the editor to
convert back to a regular text area.
