None that I know of.

Yes. See https://github.com/xwiki/xwiki-platform/tree/master/xwiki-platform-core/xwiki-platform-wysiwyg

Yes, but not in a straightforward manner, for the moment. Jerome has
started to work on http://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-7785 but didn't
had time to finish. The main issues to reuse the code are:
* a dependency on SmartGWT/SmartClient for one of the XWiki specific plugins
* XWiki specific plugins (Jerome started to move them in a separate
module I think). But you can choose to not load them from
should work, if you also make sure SmartClient code is present..
Jerome did you push your changes somewhere? I could try to finish your
work when I find some time.
