I get the gist of what you're saying, but don't agree with the specifics
starting points and directions. It's not that we're asking ra_serf to use a
"stricter interpretation of the editor api" -- it's that we're asking it to
honor that API *at all*. All of these (and several other) problems with
ra_serf stem for the simple fact that it was not written to obey the spec.
We've dealt with it thus far by forcing our editor implementation to be able
to gracefully handle ra_serf's shortcomings in this respect. So if there's
an developer-accessible option to be had here, the default should be for the
RA layer to be well-behaved, with the option to break the editor drive rules
in some well-defined way. The choices should be two different known
behaviors, not merely "Order" and "Chaos".
