Since we added a deprecation warning in Scratchpad in 70, and since we talk about the editor mode as an alternative in the MDN page we link to from the deprecation message, I wonder if we could enable the editor mode in Beta for 70.

What do you think Harald?

Yes, we should get editor mode roll into release unless any blockers get filed. So far I am not aware of any.
