Hedley:

You are a hoot!!!! :)  And, your points are well taken. Content 
management tool vendros are designing solutions that address your 
concerns about plug-ins and third-party tools. While Adobe may be slow 
to adopt the functionality plug-ins provide, CM vendors are not. In 
fact, several vendors, including SiberLogic, are marketing their 
products to FrameMaker users by making the case that pug-ins and third 
party applications go away when you marry FrameMaker and a content 
management system.

  Another reason to move away from the old paradigm and toward content 
management.

You can learn more about SiberLogic's SiberSafe (and the lack of 
plug-ins) from Rob Hanna's "Ask the Expert" article on FrameMaker and 
SiberSafe located here: http://www.siberlogic.com/framemaker/.
