Although it will result in two more items in the CM, I had the same idea.
However, I would try to find two terms beginning with the same word
(Text, Edit, or so). Then followed by another word depicting the method,
such as "Direct" or "In-Frame" vs. "Text Editor". (And to me, it's a
"Text Editor" rather than a "Story Editor", but I don't know how other
DTP products usually call it).
So I could imagine
Text - In-Frame
Text - Editor
Edit: Text Editor
or something like it.
I have to add that I am used to go over the tool button and do not use
the CM for it, and since I couldn't find it so well with the icon set in
1.4.x, I swapped the icon to something more visible for me.
And as we are just talking about it: Isn't it somewhat inconsistent to
have "E" for the in-frame editing and "Ctrl-T" for Text Editor? Wouldn't
"Ctrl-E" and "Ctrl-T" be more easily memorizable?
Just my 2 cents...
