Rich Text metafield videos and pictures?

I am using the Dawn theme, and I am trying to add some Rich Text metafields to my product pages. 

 

I have "Rich Text" selected as the type of metafield, but it has no where close to the functionality of the "Description" field that the Dawn product page ships with.

Is there any way to set a metafield to the field in the first image?

Here is the solution I figured out on my own:

 

  1. Create a new "Page" with all the unique content you want to display for a specific product
  2. Create a new metafield on the Product model and make it of type "Page"
  3. You can now link the page you created in step 1 to that metafield
  4. In your custom product theme template, add a "page" section, and then dynamically link the metafield you just created (using the "Connect dynamic source button")

This seems like a pretty genius work-around, but would rapidly become terribly difficult to manage. I don't understand why these forums can support images, video, and the rest of the "rich text" types, but metafields are dumbed down to simply headings, bold, italic, and lists?!
