Heh... your elaborated alright.

As far as using telnet to do that I would say its not a common task and it could be done but you would have write a custom telnet application to bring the file back for editing.

Long answer -- I'm sure you could find a way to do it.
Short answer -- No its not possible.

You could use remoting if you have an X server on the remote machine. Install nano on the UNIX server. It is a very painless text editor like notepad. I have never bothered to use or learn VI to this day. Between sed, awk, grep, cat, etc I can modify a text file without using that damn editor!
