Besides choosing whether or not to render a WYSIWYWFU based on urls, choose 
any of the following:

  * CCK-textarea toggle (limited to nodes, but very granular)
  * textarea ID, possibly advanced settings with regexps. Each TE has an id, 
it should be easy to capture all these possibly even combined with urls. See 
HTMLarea drupal mod for this implementation.
  * users/roles.
  * user setting, or session variable.
  * theme. Texareas are themable you can use this.
  * time of the day. Dont show textareas between midnight and 6 oclock (right 
makes no sense, but just to make my point clear) 
  * position of the moon in relation to the sun. Again: senseless but hey, who 
I have played with #2 for quicktags, and have the code for per-area settings 
done: in admin-textarea mode each textarea comes with some settings:
  [x] Show quicktags on this textarea
  	[X] show for administrators
    	[X] show for registered users 
    	[ ] show for anonymous users 
     	[ ] show only if the moon is up, and the sun is down. (no, this one will 
not go in)

Hope to introduce this in the 5.0 version of quicktags, with possible backport 
to a 4.7.1 version.

So: core needs not support anything, you already have full power to make 
whatever you want.
