Yes, I know about the limtations of the display engine, but those
limitations will need to be lifted anyhow, for Emacs to be able to
display examples that Oliver talked about.

What I asked was about the idea of rearranging the text in the buffer
as dictated by the style information in the file, not about current
limitations of the display engine.  I suggested to discuss specific
problems in using that idea to implement word-processing features.
Obviously, display of arbitrary mixtures of variable-size characters
doesn't belong to the class of problems that this idea could solve.
