I think the Generic Editor and Language servers are an excellent opportunity to grow in the direction of providing better IDEs. Let's invest on this!
Let's not put too much hope in it.
Established editors such as JDT, CDT or Webtools ones are very likely to not adopt generic editor because of legacy and very advanced features available in them. I hope the generic editor will be widely adopted and bring consistency for the future editors, but I don't think it's going to magically solve mistakes that were done in the past and that the most important projects have built on. (not blaming anyone, it's easy to say 'mistake' with 10 years of experience later, but very difficult to anticipate all of them before anything exists)
