I'm not sure whether you're directing this at me specifically, Ian, but
here's my answer: of course they'd use any opportunity and we should try
to use this opportunity to promote open document formats.  If OOorg's
formats is the most likely way to get that, let's go.  Most of us on
this list probably know that it isn't the best way and there's no harm
in noting that, but this is a small move forwards worth encouraging,
even if we hope for more.  Who knows, it may start spreading clue.
