A few reasons to leave writing to OOXML disabled:

1) Nowhere I read a valuable argument to enable writing OOXML, just than adding
a feature. (If an option isn't usefull leave it!)

2) Writing in another than native (so ODF) format will give losses.
This will decrease the general quality of documents.

3) For MSO users writing to .doc (etc.) is much more usefull, thus sufficient.
MSO users, who are not willing to use .doc or wanting more fidelity, are for
certain able to import ISO-ODF.

4) Writing to OOXML-transitional will decrease the use of real standards like

None of my arguments are offending Microsoft, although I am not their fan.

So don't add chaos, go for standards, believe in it and spread ODF!
