Sorry to get into the discussion, but what are your goals, to be arrogant,
or not? Or to make ODF the defacto standard which saddly is still NOT? The
important thing is to fulfill the needs from potential users, specially in
the enterprise. *e.g. *E-mail composers in the enterprise usually support
text, RTF and HTML, and will automatically reply in the same format, why?
Because enterprise users need to support all market standards! The same
applies for File Formats, the enterprise users need to support the
maket-share leaders, and even though we don't like it, the market leaders
are still MS File Formats. It's not about being arrogant, or making a point,
is about winning market-share, and if we don't understand that, we already
lost the race.

Please excuse the double reply to this post. It was inadvertent.
