In this case, one person is presumably going to fulfill both roles, 
but I think both aspects are important and require knowledge of the 
subject, although more so in the case of a commissioning editor. I 
don't think there is any difference in editing requirements between 
an esoteric interest and a serious mainline one, but in either case 
the editor needs to understand the subject matter.
