Well, after all, its just "Plain Text" you are editing.
Whenever there is an Elipsis, there is a convenient "hack" in the
display hiding what you don't want to see, but it is never the less a
hack. So I got into the habbit that, whenever I edit a line that 
contains "...", I unfold it first; whenever it is folded, I only 
a ) view it or 
b) navigate with the org commands like the speed keys
   (http://orgmode.org/manual/Speed-keys.html) or 
c) use the org structure editing command 

For extensive editing with emacs board tools, there is always 
"M-x show-all". 

So, I agree, whenever there are ellipsis, editing "it ... can
get one into trouble". So I just don't ;).
