All of these applications mentioned use the same text engine that Scrivener does, but Scrivener has amplified support for footnotes, images, comments, and some other things as well. Outside of Nissus, it's probably one of the better Apple-based RTF handlers on the market. Bean is pretty good too, but neither of those are multi-document compiler solutions. DEVONthink is just using Apple's engine as well, and last time I checked it can't produce a single document out of many (but I'll freely admit to not being a DT expert).
In short, if the OP just wants basic word processing and multi-file organisation of an outline then yes there are alternatives (but like I say, Scrivener is pretty top of the heap in that category), but from what I gathered, they were wanting something more powerful than what the Apple text engine provides. It's a pretty decent engine, but it's not really designed for layout and good typography---not even Apple uses it for their word processor.

But, devonthink can not only merge docs, it can do something scrivener can't in early writing process, which is help me analyze and verify data and ideas against my research sets.

You can hack massive databasing into Scrivener but it really isn't made for it. You can hack massive writing into DT, but it isn't really made for it.
The two make a nice pair for those that need both of those in extremes. Everyone else can probably get away with one or the other.
