Here is what he says:
first, improve RichText widget to provide fundimental functions to
manuipluate the editing area
'fundamental functions' refers to something like create element in the
richtext, find whether one element is a child of another, etc
second, rework Editor widget/EditorToolbar Widget to support plugins, custom
defined actions etc
and implement a framework for dialogs
i18n/l10n is planned as well
and I have some other ideas, such as the principle of "Action" (like the one
another idea: make RichText widget based on plugins itself, so that the
users can plugin/unplug some specific actions/commands
He's got a bunch of ideas, obviously it's not fully formed, but I don't
think he wants to write a big proposal without some idea that he can get
He wound it up with this modest claim:
the final deliverable will be an extensible/powerful (comparible to
fckeditor) WYSIWYG editor based on Dojo

Did he say exactly what he meant by that? I got the impression that what
Alex has been busting his nuts on for Jot does FCKEditor a bit better (and
it was kind of my impression that the Dojo RichText editor already *did* FCK
one better as it was? Although that was based on the editor work I did back
in 2002 and a quick review of both the current Dojo one and FCKEditor about
4 months ago)...
