You're right, mostly.  My point was that with displayed equations (in
amsmath, since core LaTeX lacks a lot in this department), AUCTeX has at
least one nice thing: C-u C-c C-e.  (Also, plain C-c C-e.)  Both very
handy.  (As for preview-LaTeX; in AUCTeX, you also have folding, which
looks worse, but is faster - at least I guess so, I hardly ever use it.)

(C-c C-e inserts an environment, with autocompletion.  With prefix
argument it /changes/ the surrounding environment.)

Also, Richard's post made me realize why I prefer to stay with LaTeX: I
know it way better than Elisp (even though I'm making progress), and in
case of troubles, I can more easily deal with them in LaTeX (though
vertical positioning of things on the page - especially trying to
typeset on a grid - still beats me).
