I'm curious when people (other than me) erred and stopped saying that ed was the standard editor.

They haven't.  When a vi vs. Emacs (vel sim.) argument is swirling around me, I explain that ex(1) is the editor I use.  People say "But ed(1) is the standard editor!"  To which I reply, "Yes, but I'm willing to trade a little standardosity for a little convenience."
