For what it's worth, I still agree with this. I think users that want to 
switch between TinyMCE and the regular text box on the fly are a very 
small minority; why make things needlessly complex?

The plugin idea is even simpler and more efficient than the existing 
behaviour; it caters for those who want to keep the RTE--probably the 
majority--and is easier for those who want just a regular textarea.
