Very nice write-up. There was a similar one done for Drupal 5 wysiwyg
editors as part of GHOP, and it'd be great to see more. I took the liberty
of adding a new book page at http://drupal.org/node/266179 for 'Module
Comparisons' and adding both as child pages so we can list them together in
one place. Also cross-posting to the documentation list.
