Without it AOO/LO has no long term future. Most of us in my company use
Google Docs and our own web pages in Drupal far more than we use Writer
Calc. Ok, we are a bit ahead of the general curve but the scope to
collaborate with our business partners is just so much more efficient it's
a "no-brainer". We rarely need complex features but we do need to share
ideas and document development.

For us Writer and Calc are more to do with handling legacy documents from
customers and government agencies than the sharp end of the business.

Which means that it makes even more sense to have a LibO Docs installed in
your own server, instead of having them in Google Docs (unless you happen to
trust Google :) ) or IBM Docs (which IMO has more credibility than Google,
but still the documents are on THEIR servers)

This would also mean you should be able to handle all the legacy documents
from a single Office suite instead of having to learn/teach two different
Office suites.

Makes perfect sense to me. The more I think about, the more I hope it will
become a reality!
