I would think text editors are not the primary target of Apparmor. Talks and demos given seem to indicate that their focus seems to be on network-enabled services, such as Apache, Tomcat, PostgreSQL and lots of closed-source services.
I've been working as a sysadmin for 8 years and I must say I welcome Apparmor with open arms. It seems to be dead simple to set up - and you can do so without to much knowledge of the application you are trying to secure. It does not try to secure every aspect of every application - they seem to rule out support for complex beasts as shared memory because it would make the configuration process to complex - which I think is a good thing.
