Anything in particular that made you change your mind about <iframe> being a direct alternative?

Editor is bound to a custom element: https://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/source/toolkit/content/widgets/editor.js
Iframe isn't. Also, there's some differences in terms of focus behaviour on the platform side.

I think you could try making editor a XUL <iframe is="editor-frame"> or <browser is="editor-browser"> and then port the CE to comm-central with the CE extending XULFrameElement.
