Hi Vicente,
Thanks for bumping this up. In aggregate, it seems that there are a few
developers that are waiting for these enhancements to RichTextEditor, so
these are definitely important to consider as we roll out future releases.

I particularly bumped up Issue #1433 so the team gets to take a look at
investigating it before a final 1.6 release. It seems like having support
for setting innerHTML would solve the most use cases in one fix.

That said, the reason why some issues go stale for as long as you pointed
out in this thread is due to prioritizing the hardest hitting bugs and new
features first, and dedicating effort to make sure those get shipped on
time. I'm glad that you brought up this thread since it gives the community
a chance to cast votes for RTE issues, a metric that we depend on for
prioritizing bugs/features.

Finally having said that, you know our motto, "Patches welcome!". If anyone
who does encounter these issues comes up with a good fix for their own
purposes, it would be great to contribute that back to GWT to get quicker
turnarounds on issues that the team might no have yet had a chance to work
