ODT exporter has been part of the Org's staging directory since rel-7.6
(early Jul, 2011) [1]. I publicly announced the availability of the
exporter around end of Jan, 2011 [2]. So the exporter has been in the
wild for an year or so.

org-odt is not only complete in terms of features it implements but has
considerably mellowed in the last year.

If stability of org-odt is a concern, I urge the maintainers to set
aside that concern. 

As Bastien notes, I have no "disruptive" features queued up for next
quarter or so. If org-odt gets accepted in to the Emacs-24.1 tree, I can
assure restraint on my part so that org-odt *never* regresses but *only*

Needless to say, I am for inclusion of org-odt in Emacs-24.1.
