Another thing that came to mind is that the survey appears to implicitly
assume that Emacs is a participants main or even only editor.  I know
plenty of people where this is not the case, who perhaps use Emacs only
for Org, Magit or for some other mode.  So perhaps questions like

  "Which editor did you use before you started using Emacs?",

should be generalised to

  "Which editor do/did you use besides Emacs?",

and a questions could be added to the effect of "How frequently do you
use Emacs a week?", "Where does Emacs fall short?".
