 - Nearly all simple text-based operations (e.g. search/replace) would
be slower and more cpu-intensive, since the editor would have to
generate the text of the entire tree to perform them effectively.
This could be worked around by keeping a cache of the current text and
updating it when a change is made, but then you basically have what we
have now: a separate parser and text buffer.
