That's more of a new mechanic rather than something that can be added to the Realm Editor imho. I was told to keep the suggestions realistic and implementable using something that was already there, hence Fractions via Teams. This sounds like something that is more suited to a 'Realms 2.0' thread the like of which me & Anjovi have done. If you do one, I am happy to link to it from the Wish List thread.
I think this part is maybe a separate idea, (worth stating in it's own right in connection to exit portals in particular)

I need to keep the list as short as possible whilst also selling an idea to the Devs, i.e. the idea is an Exit Portal, the reason why it should be added to the Realm Editor is x, y, z. I think it strikes the right balance but will think on it some more.

The Wish List is more to do with 'Features that can be added to the Realm Editor' and the creation & moderation process than general gaming mechanics etc though obviously they can and do over lap. Julian has already created an official thread for Tutorial feedback
and this is probably something best discussed there imho.
The Wish List is one from primarily a Realm Design perspective rather than a Player one and is meant to as much as possible use or expand upon what already exists in Realms or what in other areas of the game can be repackaged and brought into Realms. Hope that makes sense.
