Frankly, I'm sure the law just says copies must be kept and doesn't
care how they are kept. The point is that they *will* be kept on
secured digital media, which means MSO, which means they will need a
copy of MSO, which means they will not need a copy of LibO.

That was rather my point. We cannot compete with what has been done in
the past unless we deal with those legacy documents that will be kept

Look, lets be honest about this - Microsoft has by far the largest
proportion of legacy documents out there and there is no way that
people can manage without access to those documents. Apart from
anything else, the law will require them to be kept and available if
needed for any future investigations.

Does the law require these documents to be stored in the native binary
format, or would a paper copy archive be considered acceptable. In any
case, is this relevant to LO? Why wouldn't users simply keep an old
version of m$? Is it not possible for m$ to be used for legacy
documents and use LO for future documents in the native odf?
