Yes, that's what I am suggesting.

The thread from June 23-ish "New Posting Screen", was never really
resolved, as far as I saw.
I don't see what makes WYSIWYG, prima facie, deserving of an option,
while draggable widgets undeserving. I know _you_ want it in there; and
I accept that maybe a lot of people want it in there. But as you told
me off-list, the rich edit option comes with a net loss of three
options. So even adding a seperate option for draggable widgets _still_
represents a net loss (read: savings) of two options. Bundle rich edit
and widgets into one option, and you retain your three options savings.
I don't see a lot of value to the interface changes for myself, and the
users I support directly.
