I agree as well. It not only messes up with what Otto said above here, 
but people are still having alot of issues in general with pasting in 
crappy stuff while writing their posts...

I agree with this as well. IMHO: Just take out the bulk. Make it a 
plugin; add the download link on the Codex plugin page, or, package it 
as default plugin. However, I'd rather see it gone from the WordPress 
zips... I never use it, and I disable it for most I install for too. I'd 
rather by default, to just upload only the most important stuff for 
WordPress to get it running and working right. Not the RTE junk... =P 
That's just me though so.. lol. Is there something smaller and perhaps 
easier to use out there RTE Wise? Or...?
