IMO, the real deal maker/breakers go something like:

* What do you need to do now, and perhaps going forward, that FrameMaker 
can't do now, that some other product does?
* What do you need to do now, and perhaps going forward, that FrameMaker 
can do now, but some other product does better?
* Is the real total cost of migrating from FrameMaker to some other 
product worth the advantage(s) that it provides?
* Is there value in retaining FrameMaker in your workflow as you 
incorporate some other product for its advantages?
