    "preferable" is not the same thing as "must".  fact is, every autotooled 
    package out there behaves this way (respects environment), 

Right.  So I agree it would be best if ed supported setting those
"common" envvars too.

    plus, ed does not use a config.status script 

That's a bug.  config.status is mandated in the coding standards.
Anyway ...

    so i imagine that's an outdated remark.

No, setting variables on the cmdline is the newer/preferred way.
Setting envvars is the older/unpreferred way -- but still supported (and
will be forever, I think/hope).
