Another not immediately obvious feature is support in LyX for various Computer Algebra Systems (CAS), including the open-source Maxima and Octave. For Sweave, a good reference would be Gregor Gorjanc's Rnews article .
Already mentioned, it would be informative to explain UTF8 support in LyX (the nuances of the variuos utf8* variants) and propose approaches to writing multi-lingual documents (including tough-nuts-to-crack, say, English+Greek+Russian). Also mentioned, exporting to Word (and the like).. Yesterday investigating (again) the issue of LaTeX to anything-other-than-pdf-or-ps-or-dvi, I stumbled upon this interesting overview  of various approaches. Good luck!
