@Charles I think in terms of going back to the bare LaTeX and then add packages that give us a simple and big help in placing figures, type maths, make slides, and so on.

Gummi is a really minimalist, distraction-free excellent piece of code. The Windows version is not so often updated, but works fine.

comment If I'm about to write a book on LaTeX, should I wait for a LaTeX3 release?
@Martin Not necessarily so. I'm not sure that I need in fact get into the LaTeX3 details in order to answer this. On the contrary, I plan simply ignore or bypass LaTeX3 developments, waiting for a mature release, when people using LaTeX2e can 'add' to his/her knowledge the novelties of LaTeX3, if this is possible. In other words, can I ignore the new language of LaTeX3 by now?

I'd even suggest replace #5 with \setuppagenumbering. What about rewrite that list?
