Curious, can't quote the first post here...
where, as with phpBB, there is a policy of not bumping topics by adding another reply but to edit the last post then you miss these edited posts.
I think one should ask himself as a board owner: why don't I want people to add a reply instead of editing the last post? I think this is to prevent pseudo-bumping.

Perhaps the edits could be integrated with bump function, e.g. "Submit & Bump" that would appear after X amount of time.
The whole rule just doesn't make sense anymore. The topic is bumped anyway.
If however the topics_track table is changed for user_id/topic_id combo to set the mark_time back to the previous post, that could indeed help: the post shows up in the unread posts function again (or any other way to list topics) but it's not bumped to be the latest post in a forum, it's not on top of the topic listing in a forum, etc.
So I actually see the benefit of this idea. Not sure if it's a good idea though.
