The advantage of in place editing is that you can also see the
documentation which can be useful for more complicated variables.
Of course, you could copy the doc too to the interaction buffer,
but it would be like duplicating the Help buffer.

But I also see that in some situations your version could be useful,
so why not provide both? E.g. press e for in place editing and E 
(S-e) for seeing the whole setq expression in a seperate buffer.
