And there is no difference to that and an editor that supports ET. If
you don't want to use ET, simply disable it, and go about your job as
normal. In all cases where I've seen editors that support ET, they have
chosen to disable ET by default - so as not to upset the apple cart.

I never suggested all editors use ET or nothing. I simply stated that if
a editor is smart enough to support ET, it could go one step further and
[optionally] support grouped numerical literals too. Obviously for text
editors (or IDE's) that only support monospaced fonts and force all text
into grid-like character cells, they will not be able to support the
rendering of grouped numerical literals either.
