Have you ever read a series of posts that don't make any sense because somewhere in the series, a poster radically edited their post? I have...that's why edit gets disabled at some time after the original post.
YOU wouldn't, but I'm sure you can imagine others editing their posts (days, months or even years later) to make themselves look more intelligent, to sidestep criticism, reverse mistakes or even just for spite. Asking for a particular edit-enabled time frame seems a lot more likely to succeed than asking for edit to be always on.
