One very cool thing about this system is that it will pass through latex markup in the input unchanged. This opens up the possibility of having an input that uses lightweight markup for chapters, sections, text formating etc. with the full power of latex on tap only where it is needed. Thus you could stay with latex but never have to write verbose structures like \begin{itemize} \item ... \end{itemize} for the simple stuff again.
