Description of problem:In anaconda's disk partitioning, people can choose to
"edit" spaceholders for "free space". I believe the edit option only makes sense
for partitions.

Well the edit gives you the possibility to actually create a new partition. 
This behavior is not all that bad if you think that the edit  is actually change
the current state of a element. It doesn't matter if the element is free or a
partitions.  The only difference is that the edit window is pre-populated if the
element a partition and is not if the element is free.
I'm closing this bug, as this is expected behavior from the installer.
