  Basically that instead of the editor working with textual representations
  of some objects, it would work with the internal representation and the
  textual representation would only be for the user.

  The past is not more important than the future, despite what your culture
  has taught you.  Your future observations, conclusions, and beliefs are
  more important to you than those in your past ever will be.  The world is
  changing so fast the balance between the past and the future has shifted.
