Thank you for your very detailed comments. I would like to this and the  
other comments in the "How could a typesetting system be today?" thread  
summarized into a wiki page or even an article. I don't have InDesign so I  
can't test these things directly, but I'd like to cooperate with folks  
here like Charles, Yue, luigi, Henneng and others to create a complete and  
precise comparison contrast between InDesign and luaTeX, with a view  
towards future development challenges.

Best wishes
Idris
