Are you volunteering? I'm not, but I agree with your intent.

Yes, and no.

The yes is you could write the content in your favourite editor then 
paste it into the the editor. However, this would walk all over the 
version control stuff in Daisy. I you need to work this way then you 
need SVN.

It wouldn't be a problem for new documents though.

It is a goal of the Burrokeet project to integrate Daisy in such a way 
that offline editing of repositories. However, it is quite a long way 
down the todo list right now.

Not yet, it is on the roadmap, but not scheduled for a particular 
release yet.
