I think this is a very good idea. I know that with HTMLArea I put a 
value onto the indicate that this should be converted, And with jQuery 
it will be so easy to exclude those that have a class or something that 
indicate no wisiwyg editor.

Also it could be used for fields that are php filtered so we know not to 
convert it.
