Not sure why you call this "renderer".  It seems it's more about
interactive elements.

Vim has always been used in a terminal just as often as in the GUI.  We
prefer functionality to be available in both.  Doesn't need to look
exactly the same, that would be impossible, but it must be possible to
use mappings, plugins, etc. both in the GUI and the terminal the same
way.  This does add restrictions to what's possible in the GUI.
