I don't believe there is a policy, but glancing at /v/l/d/alt/editor and
simple reasoning says that editor should be console based, and a good 
common denominator for the users on the system - i.e. something easy
to use without much training. Anyone who wants something specialized can
set it that way. (By this reasoning, vim should not have the level it
does. I'm tempted to file a bug (wishlist) on vim on the matter.)
