Gutenberg project is cool… but designed for final users.
Developpers need more fexibility according to projects requirments.
we should be able to choose editor we want for each project !
My proposal is to add and maintain the 3 best WYSIWYG editors to the ClassicPress core !
Let’s vote for that

I vote no.

I vote no too for the reasons given by
@John and @Pieter Bos. It’s also worth pointing out that neither Redactor nor Froala is free, so they shouldn’t be on the list anyway.
This is plugin territory.

I vote no, too. Its plugin territory, and there are already a few plugins doing exactly that. Theoretically (and practically, too) you may even go as far and replace the whole editor with custom textareas based on ACF and not have a care for the rest.

Also think about compatibility and work to implement that and support inside a big project like wordpress.
Usually is better to have a list of pros/cons about why we need to switch and support other editors.

I’d like to have native Markdown support, personally. And get rid of
However, TinyMCE and WordPress are very, very deeply tied together, with a shared history going back many years. This would be far more difficult than you might expect.
