Let's read the document you cite,

A permissive license is recommended/suggested in two cases, when
a. «very small projects»
b. «projects that implement free standards that are competing against
proprietary standards,
such as Ogg Vorbis (which competes against MP3 audio) and WebM (which
competes against MPEG-4 video)»

I cannot fit OpenOffice in any of these criteria.

Doesn't implement the free standard ODF, which is competing
against the MS Office "standard" file formats?

Currently OOo is a big piece of software that among many things can
read/write ODF documents. If OOo was to be simplified into an ODF
(non-GUI) component, reusable in many other applications, then the FSF
suggestion is being read properly.
