It's very easy for sysops to edit through page protection by accident, not realizing it's protected. There is a note, but it's easy to slip up.
A small request - could the background color of the entire edit box and edit summary box be changed to a light shade of red or something, if the page is protected? To make it impossible to miss? For a tiny change I think it'd avoid mistakes.
Perhaps simply an alternate CSS class could be used on the editbox on protected pages.
