You are confusing programs: a Word Processor (such as LibreOffice
Writer) is
not a Desktop Publishing software.

I don't think anybody is confusing something. Not so long ago with you mobile phone you could make 
phonecalls, nothing else. Things change and I think that from a modern word processor you can 
expect to rotate an image (at least 90 and 180 degrees) and to add image captions below and above 
an image.

just look at what other word processors can do. libo should not fall behind that.

I suggest that you use the FLOSS (Free/Libre Open Source Software)
Publisher named Scribus

you are right, for real dtp applications scribus is the correct choice. but again, "normal" users 
of a word processor expect some simple dtp-functions like the ones mentioned. If someone wants to 
do a simple birthday invitation card, he/she should not have to go dtp (or even gimp etc) to do
