Indeed. However, when working on a paper, one wants to have a system
that is quick, reads easily and is basically well integrated in the
system. When it comes to exporting/sharing documents, one can accept
the route to be a bit more circuitous.
This means that there could be a dual system:
-- one side for preparation/personal work that, a the price of
diminished compatibility, gives the user an environment that takes
advantage of the specificity of Mac OS: Quartz, bundles etc. and would
also permit things like synchronicity on a finer level than pdfsync
-- one side for exporting/sharing that goes the ``standard'' route.
The switch between both sides should be as simple as selecting an
option like ``sharing mode'' in the integrated TeX environment one
