Thanks for your suggestions.

As for the instance, I would expect that the_editor() creates an
independent instance, as it explicitly asks for the id for the textarea
(second parameter), and based on that, it should be possible to create
an independent "namespace". It just seems that some features are
hardcoded to the default instance, such as the switcher between visual
and HTML mode.
