I think that LaTeX is a bit different from a pure programming language and therefore I think that a LaTeX text editor should have special functionality like image preview,
math objects preview and, for example, a "wrap at column" or "wrap at character" functionality. Something similar to AucTeX for Emacs.
The important thing is to keep the editor as a real editor, like Emacs, not like LyX.
In my opinion an image preview, appearing for example under the \includegraphics command, and a "wrap text at character" option are the most important feature to boost the diffusion of LaTeX and, at the same time, to make the revision of a document easier.
