I saw the Garvin's comment and if someone can elaborate this part:

"Functions defined in those files could apply any
Widget (like FCKEdit, HTMLArea or any custom-made PHP/HTML
function) around/instead of the default htmlareas."

Does it means that it can be used to change the default textarea currently
used in insert/edit page to something else?
