How can it be in anyone's interest to remove apps like this from the OS ?

When in the history of computing hasn't a system come with a basic text editor ?

These get used for any of a thousand different problems - tweaking config files, basic text manipulation, looking at log files.

Many places won't allow external software downloads either, so tying to get the Vogons in change management to approve such a change will often prove pointless.
