Comment (by boonebgorges):

 > Alternatively, you could consider 2 different types of text fields:
 simple text and rich text. In that case, the richtext support would go
 into field type.

 Yeah. My thinking is: (a) richtext vs non-richtext doesn't seem like a
 distinction on a par with the current field types (textbox, textarea,
 radio, etc), though I'm not sure that I could come up with a full
 explanation of why it doesn't :) and (b) there are so few cases in which
 one might legitimately want to disable richtext for a given field that I
 think it's appropriate to relegate it to a filter, and not clutter up the
 interface with it. If we go with the minimal solution proposed in this
 ticket - enable richtext for textarea, and let people turn it off via
 filter - it's easy to introduce more fine-grained defaults and UX in the
 future, should there be demand for it.
