I agree, we should only focus on text, but it should be possible to reuse
as much as possible of the Cas Editor when someone needs to make
a new type of editor to visualize a sofa in a different way.

That could just be put into an editor which extends the existing
Cas Editor. It would implement the editor differently, but might want
to reuse other existing views, or support to load and store a CAS.
