Last time I have used LaTeX was in 1998 for my diploma thesis. It did not use much of LaTeX, basically only the chapter/section structures, the odd formula, some EPS graphics and BibTeX for the literature references. For such a scenario, I could imagine a rather slick TechWriter export feature - but there are so many different LaTeX packages around that expand the capabilities significantly, so I guess it would be quite difficult to tackle import/export in a "generic" way.

Judging a LaTeX import/export feature from a commercial point of view, I guess it could only be successful if you generate new users from other systems (especially Linux), which means you really need a zero-cost emulation environment to be competitive - nowadays, I just can't imagine anyone buying a complete RISC OS system just to use one application!
