    This refers to running the software on the vendor's host, and
    delivering only the service to the user.

That is the general definition of SaaS, which I already know.
(See http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/who-does-this-server-really-serve.html.)
The question was about what these capabilities are.

      I don't know what Oracle is planning
    for OOo, perhaps turning the redisplay into an arm's-length client,
    perhaps rewriting it to target Web2.0 technology instead of local GUIs.

That seems like a plausible guess.
