It's a nice idea, but it's a bit of a hassle to have to open up a dedicated editor process. I remember an older plugin for Firefox (IIRC) that opened up your system editor for you, which was much more convenient, even if it didn't support bidirectional editing. I use vim, and I found it easy for the vim process to seize/lock up. I've found wasavi much more convenient, and it works much better than I expected. It's nice to have something that opens it regular vim, but not at the cost of inconvience and buggy processes.
