This task is about reviewing the Editing-related 2021 Community Wishlist Survey responses and documenting, as comments, wishes that could be technically difficult/complex/impractical to implement in VE.
The "Editing-related" responses needing review can be found here: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Community_Wishlist_Survey_2021/Editing.
Ideally, this task is completed by Friday, 4-December-2020.
2021 survey proposals that would be technically complex to implement
Thank you @Esanders for identifying these.
|Citations/Integrate Template:Sfn into the visual editor||Very complex; WMDE may be looking into this.|
|Automatic visual editing of spanned templates||Probably requires substantial Parsoid work.|
|Editing/Allow table columns and rows to be freely movable in the Visual Editor||This would likely be difficult for non-VE engineers to implement.|
|Editing templates recursively||Probably requires lots of Parsoid work.|
|Citations/Allow editors to identify the specific text that is supported by a citation||Hard to do while supporting visual editing.|
Existing issues that surfaced in the 2021 survey
Thank you @Esanders for mapping these connections.

|Deploy visual section editing on Desktop||T221908|
|Unintentional false links in VE||T56947|
- For all VE-related wishes that would be technically difficult/complex/impractical to implement, comments have been added to said wishes explaining said difficulty/complexity/impracticality.
