It really depends on what you use a DTP app for. A newspaper or magazine 
won't need sample text very often since the layout is more or less 
fixed. On the other hand, if you have to do many different jobs for 
different customers, all of them with different layout preferences, 
lorem ipsum is a standard tool. Personally, I always present different 
proposals with lorem ipsum to force them to *look*, and not to read.

Of course this will do the job nicely. Maybe it would be useful to hear 
what others think about this issue.
