Something that works like LibreOffice, where you can write a document,
select parts of it, mark them in bold, justify them, etc.  All of that
while you see the results in a WYSIWYG fashion.  The closest thing there
is now is enriched-mode, but that mode does not offer the same level of
features as LibreOffice.

There is more context about this potential new feature in /etc/TODO
under the section "Emacs as a word processor".
