Absolutely.  If it requires an on switch to take effect, I have no complaints.

Ordinary editors should include not only VIM and EMACS (in a very
ordinary mode, and without custom scripting) but also things like
gedit, etc.

In other words, I am not comfortable with the idea of a feature which
is on by default, and requires color highlighting of whitespace in an
editor to debug.  If it is off by default, then when you see the on
switch, at least you know where problems might be.

Best Wishes,
