It  would cause a mess in my opinion. I always CTRL+A, CTRL+C before I ap-
ply  any  changes. WordPress tried to 'help' with the markup and is  some-
times  devouring  code and/or text in process. What I proposed before  was
keeping  a  stack of versions so that one can undo, reverting to  previous
states for the reason listed above.

Other concerns: some people might edit off-line or be in the midst of typ-
ing. It's too unpredictable.
