BTW those specs have been refined since posted here. But since I didn't got much feedback on mcp-dev I didn't spam people with the update.

The updated specs are at:

I still keep thinking the update/consistency problem is tricky and will most likely require core changes, hence a non-trivial installation, which I believe is beyond the scope of a simple local editing. I fully agree with Erik that an Edit Package That Does The Right Thing (with sessions and all) has to be done, but I think that's another project.

Hopefully there is room for two edit package (mcp-rawedit and mcp-edit?)
