Frederico --

I'm certainly no major decision maker, but here is my impression:

1) I always like having choices.  Giving WP users a choice in WYSIWYG  
editors would be nice.

2) I can't imagine it being part of "core" WordPress, as much time and  
effort has gone into making TinyMCE work, and the general philosophy  
here seems to be "K.I.S.S." -- i.e. leave the options to plugins.

3) I believe it _could_ be incorporated into a plugin that would  
replace TinyMCE with your system.

4) If such a plugin were made, it would almost certainly have an  
audience.  (On my blog, I once had a user of my WP plugins ask if they  
"work with FCK")

Good Luck -- it sounds like a worthy project to me. :)
