Most of what you say is true, but you're missing the essential.
Show them LaTeX and *most* of them will stick with Word. Don't show
them LaTeX and they'll think Word is all there is.
One big advantage of LaTeX is bibtex: automated bibliography. UL
supports EndNote, which is good, but the site licence only goes as
far as a discounted price for home use, which means it is no use.
