Yes, I think this is most sensible thing to do.
We're already having both (busybox and vim) in basic setup and looks like vim
even in tiny version is adding maintenance overhead we don't need.
Keeping compatibility with vim is something lots of people used to, so I'd hope
that keeping it will help us to avoid people complaining too much.
