Re(1): What OOo Writer needs more than anything else: Typography

How dismissive of you. I have been in the publishing industry for 20 years, and have used just about every commercial and open source package that has been in vogue in that time. Sorry, but when I say "I am not an noob", I mean it.

This is not an apples to oranges comparison. If it were, then OOo, would not support page layout features such as frames. However it does, and that makes it a contender in the page layout market. I WANT it to succeed in this. I want a good alternative to the commercial packages. Scribus isn't there yet (but it's getting close). OOo is the only presently viable alternative to Scribus.
