Should MS Editor be added to http://ss64.com/nt website?

Hello, despite of its name, MS-DOS Editor is included in new 32bit Windows versions (Antonio Ancini confirmed its presence in Windows 8.1 here), but it is not present in the ss64 website here.
Here you can find the MS Editor help at microsoft.com.
Do you believe it should be added? It should, to me.

SS64 has always been focussed on the Windows NT shell, we don't try to cover Windows 95, command.com or MS-DOS.

The only reason the old MS-DOS Editor is still included in some current Windows versions is to provide (some) backwards compatibility with Extended ASCII text that you may still have from ancient systems.

For new work I would strongly recommand using an editor that can handle unicode, i.e. something like Notepad++

Thanks Simon, I will assume you didn't add the edlin command for the same reasons.
