I don't think it makes sense to generate text without doing this kind of
at the same time.  For example, you would not write footnotes as normal text
later scan the text for footnotes and mark them. Same for references,
and tables. If you take a look at LyX you see that it supports a quite
content model (btw. it also supports DocBook).

Tables and formulae are important as it is necessary to define the import
Currently I see only TeX and MathML (or both) as formulae format.

Also footnotes/endnotes have a major impact on steps 4./5. pagelayout, so
good to have that on the list early.

It's a long way to go for Scribus.
