Do you want ‘install it by default’, maybe? Merging a specific extension into core would just bring the same problems with regards to old toolbar.

What problems exactly? My understanding is that the "classic toolbar" was removed for maintenance reasons. Given that we have to maintain WikiEditor one way or another, where it lives is less consequential.

Also other places. And last year. And, yes, everyone who has offered to help is ready to do their bit on the schedule that we agreed to two months ago.

Whatamidoing-WMF added a comment to T30856: Remove classic edit toolbar from core.

@Johan I think that this wants to be in Tech News soon (#42 or #43). The main message is "The 2006 wikitext editor is no longer supported and will be removed from Special:Preferences". The project page is at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Contributors/Projects/Removal_of_the_2006_wikitext_editor

Whatamidoing-WMF added a comment to T206549: Support for early community input on proposed mobile interventions.

@Deskana, is this page about potential improvements at mw.org meant to be a subpage of http://mediawiki.org/wiki/Mobile_editing_using_the_visual_editor_report or is there a different page for the project? At the moment, I'm thinking that a separate project page would be more logical, but whatever you prefer is fine.

Whatamidoing-WMF added a comment to T206550: Identify target wikis for mobile editing improvements.

The team's initial list of target wikis is here: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Mobile_editing_using_the_visual_editor_report#Target_wikis They were selected to be mid-sized Wikipedias with a significant number of editors who are already using mobile (and therefore likely to benefit the most from improvements to mobile editing).
