Already there, sort of: It's called MrEd, and is part of PLT Scheme.
It provides the editor for DrScheme, but can also be used as a standalone
multi-media file editor -- including a simple embedded web browser! --
and as a framework for building standalone GUI-based apps. (DrScheme
itself is built on top of MrEd.)
