The normalisation only really needs to happen
once, though. There may
be a few little bits where people have made wikitext edits since the
last WYSIWYG edit, but the whole article will only need to be
normalised the first time there is a WYSIWYG edit.
Only if you immediately go all-WYSIWYG and no-one is ever allowed to
directly edit wikitext ever again. This strikes me as likely to go
over very badly indeed.
No. I clearly said there would be small amounts of
deal with new wikitext edits, but that the whole article would only
need to be normalised once. I was not assuming we would do away with
wikitext editing entirely (and wouldn't support doing so).
He might be alluding
to the fact that even after you normalize it,
someone not using WYSIWYG can go and make an edit that happens to use
pre-normalized stuff, and as a result that gets messed up the next time
someone edits using a WYSIWYG editor.
