I would just like to respond to this one,

Sebastian is right : this is where LaTeX can bring its overwhelming 
experience to FO ! The rendering process. FO processors are far from the 
quality achieved by solid long experienced LaTeX based tools. I must 
recognize this even if I am a dedicated fan of FOP, my  favorite FO 
Processor. On the other hands, the some LaTeX nightmares like very complex 
tables and some others are a piece of cake for FO users.

I think that LaTeX experts may help FO pionneers to set high level tools up !

Happy aniversary to FO by the way.
