Yup, pretty much agree.

But should mention once again Jim's point that we're not *forced* into
the factories, if we're willing to live with editors occasionally
starting an edit (i.e., generating an open "<delta-pkg>" tag or a
little bit of network traffic) and then immediately closing it because
there's nothing to do.

Still think that's kind of losing and that it's worth reverting,
