Good to know! FE editing for TV is one of painful things...

I think there is no any special reason, it simply was not done in typo3

There is one strict rule: core should not be depended on extensions. So 
we cannot introduce knowledge about tv or dependency on tv into core. 
This change will be banned. However we can use hooks! I am not sure what 
technically must be done to access flexFormPointer but can it be done 
with hooks? If yes, we can add a hook in core and tv can hook in and do 
whatever it needs. If not, may be a concept of flexFormPointer can be 
extended/moved to core.

As to TS, I remember that we already have a hook to process custom 
content objects. May be, it can be used in some way?

In general I like the idea but I am not sure how to implement it all at 
the moment: I am too far from that area of the code right now.
