[OS X TeX] TeX "Alternatives" FAQ?

While the discussion on word processors might be OT, the matter of 
integrating TeX with other programs and/or finding alternatives to a 
pure TeX system are definitely on-topic, IMHO.
In fact, Wolfram's Publicon sounds quite on-topic. Same with LyX, 
Scientific Assistant, TeXtures(??), etc.
Anyone has a good resource comparing these applications and others for 
academic publishing or other forms of document creation?
We probably have all been looking for the academic killer app. For many 
of us, that app needs to have some form of TeX implementation and/or 
pathway toward/from TeX. Maybe through XML formats, including 
specialized XML specs (MathML, MusiXML, BibML...).
Instead of all be looking at the same time, maybe someone could lead us 
to some sort of FAQ about this? "Academic documents on Mac OS X: The 
TeX Enthusiast Version"

Thanks in advance for your help!
