there is still very much to do to make Drupal core fully compatible to Wysiwyg editing, so releasing D7 earlier would have the opposite effect.  See http://groups.drupal.org/node/6492/summary

Without having looked at the code, I like the module's idea and the effort behind it.  In a way, it applies the same principle as Wysiwyg API does to handling of input formats: consolidation and optimization.  I would like to see this module evolve and apply the things we've learned to Drupal core afterwards.
