But this *is* for fidelity reasons - just not meant for archiving. If
I send my team (e.g. in India) a document created in Impress or
Writer, I want the document to be opened in more or less exact the
same form it was sent. This has nothing to do about being able to open
the document 20 years from now or about legal requirements for
archiving (in Denmark, TIFF and JPEG are only allowed formats). This
has to do with sending documents around *now* and to enable any
recipient to have all information readily available for displaying the
document in the form I created it in.

Thank you for contributing here Jesper.

I think that TDF members are failing to see that LibreOffice documents are
expected to be editable.

And that suggesting that users should use PDF for a presentation is absurd
(I won't even get into the Draw domain where this is even more important).
It doesn't make ANY sense to create a presentation in an application that
allows dynamic transitions, animations, videos, interactive slides and then
save the output as a static PDF...

If ODF is the file format for LibreOffice then it must support all
requirements for all the LibreOffice applications. We are not talking about
the word processor only (Writer)
