That's quite OK.
Given a specific workflow and a quite distinct concept about the information you want actually to get into your database, you can easily do a word template for a specific task -- e.g. having a doctor typing an surgery report or an medical analysis or something similar.
In comparance to a free-style word document, this is rather depending on a rather well structured word document.
I don't think, there will be a standard way of using word as editorial interface - otherwise word would be the best thing to use.
I actually did not experiment much with the HTML export, but people are complaining that much about it, that I did not even consider using it.
BTW: I looked at RFT -- it looks painful!
I am checking out the MSXML.DOMDocument stuff in VisualBasic (to which I am an absolute beginner with no documentation at hand) Maybe it is far better to come up with a "exportXML" macro in Word itself?
If this is going to work, the thing could maybe be used as a VBScript, which could be held in suite - Windows only.
