IMO a lot of the 'problems' with InDesign are actually conceptual problems with the styling. Styles are usually poorly organised and implemented and often created on an ad-hoc basis.

But frankly I think publishers should kick the habit of correcting galley-proofs and design a work-flow in which the text can be forked for electronic and print production. Proper print layout sometimes requires adding elements to the text (like centered asterisks to indicate a scene-break that happens at the end of a page) which make no sense in a reflowable format.
