That's interesting to  know about OASIS, thanks for the explanation.

What about  sharing the document file format support between FOSS
related programs?  It's the other part of the idea that not got
answered :)

The ODF formats are well documented. I don't know how much more support
other FOSS related programs would need other than help with it implementation
in  a particular program. I am sure that is a FOSS developer team asked for 
someone would lend a hand.

I think he means having a shared library that all the programs - LibO, KOffice, 
could all use for accessing ODF.

However, that is likely unrealistic as the different programs often use very 
different frameworks.
KOffice uses Qt, which is dramatically different from Gtk. I'm sure you could 
integrate them if you'd like, but I see no reason why you would want to and 
having a single
library of that nature support multiple frameworks would be nuts and difficult 
to maintain.
