Mikael, I'll gladly turn that into an enhancement request. What's the appropriate project for that to go under?
I would say the Platform UI project, as I imagine the implementation would have to be in org.eclipse.ui.ide bundle or similar.
As for the part about quick editors, let's suppose that you are right and that we are not competing with these tools. Then maybe we should. An ostensibly lighter, faster, more focused Eclipse wouldn't hurt us if it had to be enabled to work in the "lighter mode" through a preference, but it might pick up some folks and convert them to the IDE-loving crowd and it might keep a few more.
Indeed, it wouldn't hurt; I'm just not convinced that the effort/gained users ratio for this would be so high.

I think you'll be surprised how that simple thing keeps people going back to emacs/vi because it is easily accessible.

I know I for one would use eclipse more this way.
