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: In-Frame
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...
