While I do think, that a Math-Shape could be pretty useful to turn KWord into 
something like TeXmacs(and probably would not even be too difficult to create, 
as the backend logic is completely independent of the user interface), the 
main workflow of using such an app is quite different. Most of the time the 
result won't be a "document", but just some calculations.
