Any file format would still be accessible to read. If someone sends

Two comments on that. OOXML documents could contain more formatting options than the old style MS Office documents, which would be lost of you saved it in a prior format, and secondly, if someone sends you a document in a certain format, then it's arrogant of you to return it in a DIFFERENT format, however much you dislike the format the sender used. That's why email clients reply to messages in the same format in which they were received.
