I'd just say flatly there won't be one. Requirements vary too much.
Basically there's more than one tools market.

For example, structured authoring in DITA using a content management
system is cost-effective for large organizations with lots of products
with overlapping functionality and/or that translate into lots of
languages, but would make no sense for a one-person department
documenting a single product in one language.
