Won't work. RTF has no idea of such typographic subtleties, although
it knows about capitals and (Microsoft Word?) small capitals. It has
an idea of animated text ... (Las Vegas lights, blinking background,
marching black ants, shimmer, ...) And then the question is: which is
the mathpazo font in RTF? Arial?
Text can be positioned on a grid, though I have no idea how fine or
coarse the grid can be.
What has this to do with RTF?!

Since when is Unicode defined in ANSI? (ANSI 7 bit is the "text" base
of RTF, which was state of the art 20 years ago when DEC developed
RTF which was then bought by Microsoft.) There is Unicode support in
RTF, but when was Unicode allowed in TeX? When became MS products
RTF has its own engine for text alignment. Its results will
definitely be different. Text size can be varied in 1 % steps, which
is much coarser then in TeX.
Could be a better approach is with TeX4ht: it can also produce XML,
which ought to be handled by modern MS Word (MS Office 2000 up).
AFAIK MS Word can also import HTML, which TeX4ht can produce as well.
Why not use TeX4ht to convert to OpenOffice's/NeoOffice's SXW format.
Finally you can "import" XeTeX's PDF output into Adobe Acrobat and
export as RTF ... Or use OCR from PDF converted to TIFF or such formats.
Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so.
