My workflow, when required to collaborate with Word (or OOo) users is to
export org to HTML, use OOo to convert to Word and send that out.  I ask
my collaborators to /track changes/ in the Word document and I then
manually incorporate these changes into my original org document.  Not
ideal but it does the job.

However, what would be ideal would be if there were a tool which would
take a Word document with /track changes/ and generate a patch file for
a text version of that document...  that could then provide some
mechanism for getting changes back into an org document (modulo problems
with line re-arrangements unfortunately).  Just a pipe dream...
