Certainly something that is in demand today, provided the editor "feels good" 
to the user.

Forcing businesses to pay for use seems hard to me if the code is freely 
accessible. You might get a lot of freeriders, and/or it might be expensive 
to find out who is really using the product to ask them to pay.

Also, if a business has to pay they will probably require some form of 
support, and a support infrastructure can be expensive to maintain.

Maybe the "Street performer protocol" described in would be interesting in your 
case? The hard part is getting enough momentum for your product to be 
noticed, but you have to do this in any case.
