IMHO, this are distinct problems.

The proposed scheme provides an "jed emulation" with xjed. The `editor'
alternative could suggest both, jed (emulated or real does not matter
here) and xjed alongside emacs, xemacs, nano, ...

editor -> jed would always use a terminal or terminal emulation

editor -> xjed would open xjed in its own window (supporting a better
drag and drop + additional keybindings) if X is running.
