I believe the "user interface" to LaTeX3 has not yet been thoroughly researched. This is as good as it gets, as far as I'm aware:     However, a lot of work has been done on the underlying programming interface:     I'd like to see a more modular, CSS-lile, interface to most LaTeX objects, from section headings to inserting figures. But I'll have to finish my PhD before I even start to experiment... For example: (just off the top of my head) \section[    label=sec:title,    short-name={This is the toc title},    mark-name={This is the title in the header},    numbered=true|false,    in-toc=true|false,    ... ]{This is the title} \insertgraphic[    label=fig:pic,    display=float|block|inline,    float=htbp,    halign=l|r|c,    caption={This is the caption},    short-caption={Caption in LoF},    ... ]{mypic.pdf} \begin{table}[    label=...    display=float|long|block...    caption=...    short-caption=...    column-setup={@{}ccc@{}}    row-setup={      1>{\toprule}      1l{\bfseries}      2>{\midrule}      -1<{\bottomrule}    }    cell-sep={,},    row-sep={;} ]    Bold , Header , Row ;    1 , 2 , 3 ;    4 , 5 , 6 ; \end{table} Will
