Yes, to take the choise away from customer is very powerful business
strategy. And a very destructive one either, as many bright minds are
wasted on creating products that could not compete if not only those
artificial "standards" supported not by logical reasoning, but by
interests of the most powerful players.

So I need to adopt DOC/DOCX in my workflow somehow. It is required by my
university and by my publishers also.
