It's been my own experience that "requests" (actually "directives") for using 
only Word came from the Marketing Dept and/or others who didn't believe that 
Tech Pubs could do the job and demanded the ability to go in and "correct 
things" as they saw fit. And because "everybody knows Word", well, that was 
that. (I remember looking at some of their "corrections" and I'm glad not to be 
there and take the "hate calls" from totally confused customers.)
