Could I optionally get my edit approved?
I read somewhere that it is impolite to edit questions and "put words in other people's mouths" which probably does make sense even if you sincerely believe that you are improving an answer, for example.
Since this is the case, I thought it would be nice if one could still choose to suggest edits at 2k+ which are directed at the author of the question rather than the community. After all, such an edit might change the meaning of the post and thus should be at the discretion of the original author.
Often people make good suggestions in comments, and I guess in some cases it might be difficult to express ideas that way, for example if they think an explicit code-example would be a nice addition.
What do people think about this? Could this perhaps have down-sides I didn't think of?
