comment Real Time LaTeX?
Cool, thanks Shreevatsa. I think we've reached rough consensus. When this question was first posted a lot of people jumped down the asker's throat, accusing them of not appreciating LaTeX's elegant separation of form and content. It seems that most everyone's now on the same page about that. Realtime compiling of the LaTeX source is at worst distracting (though personally I like it). It's not any kind of violation of the principles of LaTeX.

Ah, I think you added this comment as I was extending my answer. Do you think my answer now addresses this point?

I think that those railing against WYSIWYG are missing the point. See my answer below.

Note to those pooh-poohing Shy's goal: realtime previewing (like StackOverflow does!) does not mean WYSIWYG. WYSIWYG means hiding the source from you so that what you are editing appears like the final output. Which, yes, for technical writing is a terrible idea.
