To take this off on a bit of a tangent, I have always been a little sceptical about the possiblility of realising the "structure renderers" without the area tree. It seems to me to depend on whether the renderer in question follows a page definitions/flows model. I don't know anything about the structure of either RTF or MIF, but, for example, if one of these formats defined page formats (size, orientation, margins) at the beginning of each section, but then had structures corresponding to the data on individual pages, then pagination, i.e. layout, would have to be performed before the structure could be rendered.

Can percentages be resolved without at least some degree of area tree construction?

Bertrand is probably in the best position to comment wrt RTF. Is anyone familiar with MIF. Does it simply define page structures and flows?
