You can get good looking PDFs out of PassiveTeX and think to TOC is
better rendered than in Fop.

I wish! ;-) My totally unscientific and anecdotal observation is that
PassiveTeX tends to render fonts, spacing and math well (it can do
inline LaTeX equations using the right extensions), whereas Fop is
somewhat better on tables and graphics.
