i'm confident, that in four years you will have discovered that in-frame 
editing is a cool feature and that the properties palette a wonderful 

more seriously, if you're serious with using character styles and 
paragraph styles, if your text frames are not upside down (or otherwise 
rotated), if your text chains don't flow for dozens of pages, you should 
seriously consider to work in the frame.

at some time in the future the story editor will be rewritten and it 
will have character styles... but for now it's hard to use if you're 
serious with text formatting...
