It most certainly is an editor, although I think the distinction is  
somewhat artificial. If I script BBEdit to be able to compile and  
preview a tex file in Skim, and make that sufficiently smooth, does  
that make the combination a front end?

If I recall correctly, TextMate uses webkit to preview html files, and  
uses the same mechanism to preview pdf files. As far as I know there  
is no synctex/pdfsync provision in that previewer. Of course, a  
TextMate user should then be editing that page anyway.
