1. What would you recommend as the backend format?

2. Do you consider Orgmode - a text markup format - as a "Word Processor"?

3. Can someone more familiar with internals of Emacs write-up a
   statement or two on what *specific* features are needed to move
   towards the "Word Processor" world.

ps: I like editing and modifying text with Emacs.  For reading text or
viewing, I feel Emacs falls way short.
