My main reason for not using doc-view when writing documents is that it
doesn't (and cannot) support forward/backward search using SyncTeX.

Hey, that shouldn't stop you from anything. ;-)

Over time, I've received some more mails from people using doc-view when
writing documents.  I've always thought that were just some weird souls,
but now we've reached a critical mass, and I come to agree that such a
lazy conversion fits the bill very well.  And of course, I wasn't really
up to implementing a feature I don't have a need for myself.  But since
you already have it and people request it, just go ahead for Emacs 24.2.
