I think the negative comments are more related to fear, WORD bashing and
user error. Every tool or feature has its purpose. Master Docs, used
correctly, are a reasonable solution for producing the final print master.
Steve Hudson's comments highlight that Master Docs are not an everyday
working solution. That is not what we use it for. But as an end to
producing a finished 1,300 page document it works fine.

Other people say "Don't use Master Docs". Ok, so what is your solution for
producing a 1,300 page product in WORD? Yes other software products exist
but, for many people, WORD is the standard in the office. So, assume you
have to use word to produce a large document.

Saying "Don't use Master Docs" is not very helpful to someone that has to
produce a solution to a problem...
