To write eg. an article or a thesis, it seems to me that you don't
need specialized page layout software (not that word or powerpoint
could ever be described as that). Mathematica can deliver pretty much
everything you will need --- with the exception of endnotes,
particularly with the sort of seemless integration that exists with
Endnote and MS Word/Pages, and footnotes.

I think if endnote (and footnote?) capability existed in Mathematica
then it could genuinely be considered as a tool designed to be
publication tool.
