There's a drawback, though: The favourite editor will only be known if
you are logged in. With JOSM and other offline editors, I rarely need to
log into osm.org at all, so I always end up having to explicitly select
JOSM / Remote Control.

I agree that replacing the links for individual *online* editors with
openstreetmap.org/edit could be a good idea, but a separate Remote
Control link for the offline editors is still useful imo.
