Sure, and I do this on occasion, but a lot of things work very well for me in Aquamacs (or Emacs). A lot of key bindings that I find useful aren't available in Pages or Word, and even trivial things like saving to a new file with C-x C-v requires using a lot of mouse clicks.
There is something to be said for concentrating on content than on layout at the writing stage. Some writers even like a distraction-free full-screen mode. The distinction between writing and layout has been proposed many times; HTML is probably the most famous example. Even MS Word has a "draft" view.
But this does not mean that bold or italic emphasis, or heading formatting, which actually carry meaning, should be deferred to the layout stage.
