As a book editor, I detest the idea. 95% of the time changing a few words to bold or italic won't flow outside of the one paragraph. If I change a large block of text I really want the font to be nice and legible, and twitching the breaks is a small price to pay.

So "Office" use maybe, general typesetting, not so much.
