Those are indeed valuable, but in the generic sense they're not "text
processing" features so much as for "word processing", the former being
related to parsing, searching, and re-assembling text, with the latter
related more to the formatting and presentation of text.
And of course with web apps, which started this thread, those features
don't come into play at all.
But I share your enthusiasm for these, and look forward to reading what
the folks at RunRev have to say on these....
