Yeah, there's a lot of things that need organized and figured out on 
what needs done and etc etc. I think with 2.8, the overall TLC should be 
given to the TinyMCE itself as well as other areas of functions / theme 
functions and such.

No, not all of that stuff you said about. The <!--nextpage--> button was 
mentioned before though, to be hopefully added into 2.7 though. It was 
brought up before, back on 2.6 trunk, before it went branch and they 
started on 2.7 trunk. It was put off back then, to be in THIS 2.7 
version. Now it's being pushed into yet another version .. (2.8). If the 
pushing to next version, after next version keeps going on, it'll never 
get done. But yeah, I think this stuff should be more focused on for 
2.8. Give a lot of love to 2.8. :D
