For now, I'll just say that Writer is not a word processor so much as
an intermediate desktop publishing program. You can actually
substitute it very successfully for proprietary tools like FrameMaker.

That is correct, but bear in mind that FrameMaker, like Writer or TeX,
is not a page layout application like Scribus, InDesign, QuarkXPress or
PageMaker, inter alia.

FrameMaker is (or used to be) an industry-standard for producing printed 
material, such as technical manuals. It's a specialized tool, designed to 
produce text-oriented documents.
