I'd really like to see this happening because it would finally solve
the problem of fop doing a rather poor job of complex pagination.

Having a reasonably complete plug-in to create OpenDocument (text)
documents people could automate document generation then manually
paginate (fine tune) the final odt-documents.

And if this worked together well with the odt-input-plugin we could
finally support a closed editing cycle so that edits to the final (print)
version (as is often done in press-publications) can be fed back into
the source for all other channels.

Preservation of pagination would be another great feature.
