GNU's lame attempts at humour aside, that actually makes sense.  MH is a line 
oriented tool, so defaulting to a line oriented editor is consistent with that. 
 If the chain Editor: -> $VISUAL -> $EDITOR comes up empty, ed is a perfectly 
reasonable default.

Realistically, leaving it set to "vi" (not "/usr/bin/vi") is fine.
