I don't know what is really safe in what respect, but 
it really doesn't look that much compatible : 

$ objdump -T /lib/libreadline.so.4 | grep Base | wc -l 
$ objdump -T debian/libeditline0/usr/lib/libeditline.so.0 | grep Base | wc -l 

Linking libeditline to every program as a replacement of libreadline
may cause some "Missing symbols " errors.

Very hard to detect, when filed as bugs.
