three items I'd like to add:
* horizontal split page layout (upper and lower parts instead of
* asymmetric stream combinations (e.g. two streams on the left page,
another stream on the facing page), and
* easy reprinting (i.e. a photographic reproduction as one stream on
the left and a text stream on the right page).
I've seen all of this in printed books so it would be a pity to live in
a world where the best typesetting system can't do that. Some of this I
already mentioned to Hans a while ago, maybe he remembers.
