1. Are you concerned that hardly anyone says “I'd wrap 'em in cellophant” these days?
2. You know how, on cooking shows and in dramas featuring high-end restaurants, kitchen workers say “Yes, chef” and “Right away, chef”? Sure. Well, would an equivalent verbal construction make sense as a form of address in your field?
Personally, I cannot really see saying “Yes, editor.” But maybe that's just me.
