It occurs to me that we do something akin to this when we make email notifications on workflows. We can merge in mostly whatever we want, with decent formatting available via the markdown. If this could be exposed to certain users, and if it could be done per record against a given table, and if there were a way to simply print it, it would let us get to a good state in terms of merging data into contract or other documents.
The word method lets us also merge the connected detail tables, which would need to be addressed, but I thought mostly contracts do not need to be pretty, just utilitarian, so simple formatting is usually enough.
