1. Would LibreOffice remove features in its full desktop suite, if it created a mobile version 
with less features?

The probable release path would be:
* View documents;
* Export to PDF, etc.
* Edit Text documents;
* Edit Spreadsheets;
* Edit Drawings;
* Edit Presentations;
* Edit Databases;
* Edit Math, if not done as part of either text documents or spreadsheets;

Thus, whilst the initial release might not be on a par with the desktop
version, the fifth or so release should be.

2. Is iWork a threat to free office suites in terms of features, compatibility and free office 
suites in general?

There are already a dozen other players in that space.  As such, the
addition of two or three more players won't, per se, increase competition.

3. Why doesn’t Apple iWork suite have Open Document Format Support? (Apart from being a 
proprietary product.) 

Probably because within the US at least, there is no business case to
use, or adhere to ISO Standards, when it comes to file formats.
