Auto proposal of topic names during editing

I just watched this video about the Wiki features of Sharepoint 2010 (they are catching up very fast) showing an interesting feature (around minute 4) of their wysiwyg editor regarding autoproposal of topic names during editing the content. Now I'm curious if something similar can be done in foswiki, possibly as addin to the TinyMCEPlugin.

Wow, I like that feature!

Yes, something very similar can be done in Foswiki, but unfortunately
no, this doesn't exist yet.

There was a similar feature in TWiki's iejs skin which added a dropdown listbox into the toolbar, containing all the current web's topics. That worked well for webs with a limited number of topics, but this new approach is of course even nicer. But it does require some sort of trigger -- in Sharepoint, that is the required [[ link code which is only optional in Foswiki.

To create this feature in Foswiki, one would have to develop an extension to the TinyMCEPlugin. This plugin is very well documented, so if you feel up to the task, go ahead and give it a try!
