I've never used iconizer but I really like bueditor. It's easy to use for 
newbies and yet doesn't get in the way like a true WYSIWYG does. I don't 
know if the code is core worthy but I think it would be a nice addition if 
it is. A compromise between those who think Drupal needs a WYSIWYG in core 
and those who say no way. Of course, it would need to be an optional module, 
not just hardcoded in.

As someone up to her ears in user profiles stuff, I second the changing of 
install profiles to something else. :)
