So do other vim GUIs. It's a text editor. Looking at my vim I just see
a lot of text. Text which I edit.

But that aside, the distinction between TUIs and GUIs is completely
artificial. The only difference is that a "TUI" *cannot* display
images, even when it might be useful. A well-designed text editor GUI
will be pretty much entirely text too.
