Well, I'm just speculating and describing. The maybe-usefulness is another 
aspect entierly. The main benefit comes from being able to do one thing, 
while another thing is happening. For example, and I'm quite sure this is a 
bad idea, but it's just an example: the preview could update once a minute 
with the state of the current text field, without the user noticing.

That's a good idea. It would also fix one of the issues I had with my XUL 
editor. With that, I had three tabs: edit, preview, and markup help. If I 
could have it so that when you changed to the preview tab, it reloaded that 
with the contents of the edit field, it would be good. 

I should start work on that again some time. Right now I'm learning LISP and 
R, and don't have the learning-space for another language however :)
