Just a thought....

Might the following message be useful the first time a user tries to save in docx.

Caution: this format is only fully supported by MS Word since 2007.  Saving in this format 
may not be suitable if you wish to share data with users of older versions of Word or users 
of other file formats.  If you are sharing with users of older versions of Word, the .doc format 
is recommended.

Please select which format to save as:
[ ] DOCX    [ ]DOC

[ ]Remember my choice and don't ask me this question again when DOCX is selected.

In the selection for which file-type to use, would the following phrasing be useful.  Docx is 
there - just not encouraged!  If my understanding is correct, docx is an xml representation of 
the binary format, so saying .doc is a format for Word 97-2010 is correct.

MS Word 97-2010 (.doc)
MS Word 95 (.doc)
MS Word 6 (.doc)
MS Word 2007-10 (.docx)
