What would be a good step forward there?

Internally we discussed an API which allowed the developer to determine which buttons should be useable in the HTML editor on the page. This didn't provide administrative controlm and there was a concern about the way buttons are named and created for different HTML editors, which was why I didn't go down that route. 

I am willing to consider other options because I was not 100% satisfied with this design.

I think it might be better to simply use an "attachment" filearea (similar to forums here, but more compact) rather than embedded links in the HTML and buttons in editors.  This is actually what Facebook, G+ etc do.

Agreed. I will update the specification, hopefully by the end of the day with a redesign based on the use of the file attachment for media and the removal of the HTML Editor.

 

I will also remove the comments tool bar setting in tinymce and the activation of the HTML editor in the commenting settings. I will leave file attachments as a setting for comments and the upload limit as well.
