I cannot agree more with you.

I purchased Publicon when it came out hoping that it would work well in 
tandem with mathematica to produce technical paper. I found quicly that 
mathematica output cells could not always be paste directly in publicon 
documents. In particular, i realised that some cells become uneditable. 
At the time, I contacted Wolfram staffs on this aspect and they 
conformed me that I had discover a bug in publicon. As far as I know, no 
patch have been posted to correct this problem. I gave up lately and 
decided to go back using mathematica only.

I suspect that publicon did not sell well which lead to no further
