Or sliders (RGB for a color, again). Or ... anything.

Why not?

Since ComboBox has a type parameter, I would expect to be able to 
provide whatever editor suits better to the encapsulated type.

As a consequence, an edited value - a value in the editor - may not be 
representable by String. Hence, again, <code>T editedValue;</code>.

That was my point, yes.
