My answer is based on the progress in machine translation we have seen over the last, say, 25 years. Editing (not generating smooth texts out of pre-processed blocks) requires a level of language capabilities yet unseen in AI-powered solutions.

It involves creativity, so unless we get a smart enough AI to have its own creativity and personality than there is no chance.
