It's true that all the packages under "Emacs editing modes" are
multifile and larger than todo-mode.el.  On the other hand, if size is
the reason for putting those other packages under a separate heading,
then the heading chosen is rather misleading.  Moreover, EDT and VIPER
are also multifile and VIPER is also quite large.  But I don't want to
make a big deal of this, so if no one else chimes in, I'll go ahead and
put the entry under "Emacs misc features".
