Simon Scholz and I are currently writing a migration tutorial. The resulting code can be found here: https://github.com/fipro78/e4-cookbook-migration-guide
In short, everything that starts with org.eclipse.ui is bad when talking about plain e4.
I agree with Tom that it depends on your application whether it is a good idea to migrate or not. Typically I would always suggest to migrate, but I also faced issues where it is not possible to migrate easily. Especially when third-party plug-ins come into play it might get a mess if they are not migrated. In such a case you are forced to have the compatibility layer in play, and this might lead to strange situations.
Regarding the EditorPart, well, maybe it depends to the EditorPart, but we also migrated one in our migration tutorial, and sure it is some more work, but also not too bad.
