Maybe what is needed is a framework that makes it easy to implement both.
After all, Emacs has Vi key bindings, so why can't this extension have both
Emacs and Vi key bindings with minimal extra effort?

Of course, it might turn out that given the available APIs, one of these
options is easier to implement than another. For example, Eclipse apparently
has Emacs key bindings, but not Vi - the latter can be obtained by an
extension that makes the Eclipse functionality available through inter-process
communication to a running Vim editor. There is a corresponding Vim extension
to provide the interface to it.

Also, Emacs and Vi should not be seen as defining the limits of what is
possible; they are simply the best examples so far of what can be achieved in
the design of good text editors.
