Depends on your perspective, I guess. It just feels like by the time I get all the preliminary verbiage TeX needs typed out, I could have written the whole letter in OO. Also, looking at my copy of 'The Not So Short Introduction To LaTeX,' it's not clear to me what document class I'd use. They're all going to be a bit clumsy and inappropriate. It's not an "article", it's not a "report", and it's certainly not a "book"...
