Something like this would IMO be needed to properly implement the recently
discussed text editd mode ( )
although the signature may need to be adapted.

It is not mentioned in the
yet, so maybe the plan is to not implement this on the object level?

So should it be removed removed or implemented?

One of the intended uses is to let UML stuff be entered directly in the
diagram -- by letting the object know when editing starts and ends, it
can do things like putting <<>> around the text when it's not being
edited. It can also let text fields limit the characters allowed or
check syntax.  I just haven't gotten around to using it in any text yet,
nor adding it to text edit guts -- mostly because those guts have had a
lot of fixing coming to them for a while.
