I guess you mean IDE-based content editors (e.g., an Eclipse plug-in
for Lenya)? These components will use a repository access mechanism
like WebDAV. The WebDAV layer can present the documents according to
meta data (i.e., the appropriate source extension is stored in the
meta data and attached in the WebDAV view of the document). The
internal storage data are *only* visible to the Lenya repository

Or do you mean editing the source files directly in your IDE?
That's like adding a crank to a car to start the engine manually.
I don't object if the car is startable manually, but I do object
to adding a 20 kg gold-plated crank which reduces the maximum
speed and requires to re-shape the car body :)
