Comment (by mrmist):

 I've only used the plugin editor when debugging my own plugin, but in
 general I think if the editor remains, then it should be able to edit any
 and all text-editable files within the plugin directory.   Otherwise it
 just opens up potential for support threads asking "why can't I edit X
 file in the plugin editor?", which would then be a recurring pain or yet
 another sticky thread in the support forums.

 Not only that, but if someone really wanted to edit the "restricted"
 plugins they could just edit the files directly in their editor of choice
 outside WP.

 So +1 to allowing general editing again and -1 to restricting it.
