If imposition comes into play, I wonder what we are talking about.
Do we talk about office software or professional typesetting?

I think it's time to ask the original poster what he intends to do.

Otherwise this discussion becomes endless.  If we are talking about
professional typesetting, I think that it doesn't make sense to
compare LaTeX/Context with Word, it would make more sense to compare
it with InDesign.

If we talk about office software, I fear that the discussion becomes
endless anyway, without any result.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
