I think you are missing the point of fine typography (have a look at TeXmacs
screenshots) neither Emacs nor Yi (both of which are egregious products) can
provide comparable aestatically pleasant screen output.  
The links you provide are in any case interesting for someone  who want to
try to implement a plugin. 

I think it will not be impossible to have a pluging in which a GHCI session
can produce graphic output in the TeXmacs buffer or have interactive
exploration of lazy structures. All this with the possibility of direct PDF
(or HTML) output.

Of course TeXmacs is not written in Haskell....
