Is it sure there will be a *product*?

 I think IBM need it for symphony so on those grounds alone I'd say there
will be code licensed so that it can be used in that product as a minimum.

Let me rephrase to: "Will there be a product named"

I cannot answer, but as Gianluca mentioned Apache is more about a project,
not a product.  And considering the OOo dependencies to copyleft components,
it will be quite a lot of work to get something that can be called "product"
and behaves like

It is obvious that there will be a product called "Symphony" .. but

This is a core point of this discussion.

I may not contribute to Apache OOo because I don't share their respectful
goals, but I may promote and market a "Apache" product as far
as it's open source and a *complete*, good software.

I'm not talking about "philosophies" or "license", but rather about what
approach to the market this Apache project will have.
