KOffice will switch to OpenOffice.org file format
"We will switch to the OASIS (OpenOffice.org) file format
for all the major applications. This has many advantages:

    * file format shared with the OpenOffice.org suite,
      we don't have to reinvent the wheel
    * we'll be able to drop our OOo import filters and
      use the export filters as a compatibility layer for
      older KOffice versions documents
    * we can actively participate in the standard file
      format creation in the the case of Kexi and Kugar
      which are applications that don't currently exist
      in OOo

This is also a good opportunity to switch the names of
our MIME types to the vnd.kde... naming scheme and to
drop our KOffice-specific file extensions. It's again
the users who will benefit from this step, e.g. on
Windows it will be possible to open files created with
a KOffice application using the OpenOffice.org suite."
