2021 survey proposals that would be technically complex to implement

Thank you @Esanders for identifying these.

Wishlist itemComment
Citations/Integrate Template:Sfn into the visual editorVery complex; WMDE may be looking into this.
Automatic visual editing of spanned templatesProbably requires substantial Parsoid work.
Editing/Allow table columns and rows to be freely movable in the Visual EditorThis would likely be difficult for non-VE engineers to implement.
Editing templates recursivelyProbably requires lots of Parsoid work.
Citations/Allow editors to identify the specific text that is supported by a citationHard to do while supporting visual editing.
