The editor may be the main player in post production but he or she is not working alone. Many other roles come into play in post.
Keep the producer and director out of the editing room until a rough cut is complete. Let the editor do their job, there will be plenty of opportunity to make changes.
A post team that was never on the set will not be emotionally attached to any of the footage. You want their sole focus to be forging a quality movie and telling a story.
