As you describe a "normal" user, I think the answer is a categorical 
"no".  (Well ... "capable", typically yes; "willing" probably not.  Nor 
does it strike me as an especially good idea.  What's the payoff for 
the effort?)

What would be the point, really?  Such users already have tools that 
serve them perfectly well, whatever their limitations for our crowd. 
TeX is for people who need the level of control that it offers, 
especially vis a vis mathematics.
