Thanks for nagging; it's very profitable for SimRel quality!
Let's split the discussion into several topics:
3. Forcing usage of the editor: although it has some nice features, it's not really more convenient than a text editor, so I don't think enforcing is ever fully possible, neither technically nor by human influence/education. In most current workflows, the review/CI is expected to be the quality gatekeeper, not the tool. So such valuable features of the editors should be made also profitable by the build validation step to get the best of both worlds.
