Yes, the code doesn't try to handle these problems.  In my poiunt of
view, the way "edit" should work is that it should basically be put into
`message-mode' and then "saving" would simply encode the whole message
(as if preparing to send it).  To do that, we could/should use the code
we already have for Gnus.
