I also wish I had more time to edit videos. Most don't get forwarded to or seen by friends as I don't have time to edit out the nonsense and create really nice 4 second scenes. And the fact that I'm lucky enough to pop in a larger HDD into my oMP when I need to makes it even more...[fill in the blank here]

I agree. Whilst iMovie and FCP are really good editing suites, the asset management leaves to be desired. With iCloud in mind, mind you. I say this as iCloud is indeed capable of storing videos, yet it only syncs photos by default. Only when I import my photos and videos into Aperture, others can see my videos after I've shared them on a Shared Stream.
My workflow is to import my photos into Aperture, whilst the phone is docked, and I manually copy over the videos from Image Capture into a folder. In the Finder I rename the videos to my preference, and I import them as referenced into Aperture. This way my photos are managed and on SSD, and the videos are referenced and on HDD.
I really hope I can fine tune my workflow with next years' Photos application, but if not I'll continue as Aperture won't all of a sudden stop working.
