We have Vim 7.0 in OpenEmbedded and I'm the one who can be called 
maintainer of it. I did upgrade from 6.2 -> 6.4 -> 7.0 and when will have 
time I plan to update to 7.0.latest-patchset. OE also contain vim-tiny.

As Mickeyl wrote we have busybox vi on device by default but it is good 
only for minimal changes rather then bigger edits.
