That post is a very good read for everybody interested in online editors.

Direct DOM manipulation is perfect for Google Docs, but we really need 
the WYSIWYG HTML part :) Not sure there are any online HTML editors that 
don't use contentEditable.

Exporting from Google Docs to standard HTML5 would be neat too.
