Unfortunately it’s not vim-complete (not sure about “pure” vi), take for
example this command line:
foo "bar" baz
Then, press Escape, 0, w, w, c, i, " — nothing happens, but in vim, this
would replace “bar”.

I suggest you look closely before posting:
I see some patches on the readline code there, but none mentions
something related to “df;” (I might be wrong).

I can confirm that. I suspect libreadline differs from bash’s readline.
