Not "in general", but of course there will be wide swathes of documents
with the same characteristics that could benefit from the same higher
level flow objects. Most documents in DocBook and TEI-Lite, for example,
could easily be done using LaTeX. If DSSSL had LaTeX-style flow objects,
you could style those languages and others like them more easily.
