A follow up-thought: As I google my way through history catching up on
developments, I come across,-Minnesota/2100-7344_3-6157245.html
this page  reporting on ODF file format being made mandatory (to the
exclusion of proprietary Microsoft formats) in several U.S. states. (It's
from 2007.) Smart move!

My opinion is still in flux, but I'm beginning to think that for most users
of office suite software, having an open document format is (or will be,
after they give some thought to it) absolutely a make-or-break issue, much
more important than who develops the actual software and how they do it, and
that's where users interested in policy and advocacy should focus most of
their effort.
