MS Office still can read and write to .doc format. LibO ability to write to .doc format if necessary is sufficient for interchange with MS office users

we happen to support a format that is used by 80+% of all 'Office Suite'

Older versions of MS office do not use the new formats. Many users of MS Office 2007 and newer still save in the older formats. Nowhere near 80+% of MS Office users the new file formats.

Totally irrelevant comment. What is gStreamer? Oh, wait a minute, it is probably a Linuts program.
