Thanks for the link Dennis, great start.
I digged further into it and found that CMIS v1.1 was recently released (0).

I also found that there was a presentation about LO/CMIS during LibOCon2012

And there's a good explanation with screenshots for integration with
Alfresco (3)

So far, what has been do is (4):

  * Universal Content Provider for CMIS is almost complete
  * The internal file picker can allow pickup up CMIS files and folders.

Another good summary is here (5):

What works now:

   - Connection to a CMIS server using the internal file picker

   - Navigating in the CMIS server using the file picker like on a local
   file system

   - Open, Save and Save As files on a CMIS server

Even if this work has already nicely progressed it is still not ready for
end users and is thus enabled only with experimental features in
LibreOffice 3.6. Among the main problems:

   - Getting the repository id to paste in the CMIS new place dialog is
   not obvious. This is already fixed in the master branch and will be
   available for 3.7

   - Check-in, Check-out and Cancel Check-out still need to be integrated
   somehow in the UI in order to handle all cases. For example, saving on a
   non-checked out document in SharePoint is not permitted.

   - Add WebService binding support as this would ease the SharePoint
   connection configuration to the user

   - Get NTLM authentication to work with the curl and libcmis built with
   LibreOffice. This is already partly fixed in master branch.

and an older summary from 2011 (6)

Also found something on Gitorious (7)

One more reference for discussion, from the June 2012 mailing list archive
