Hmmm, I may be mistaken but aren't we talking about the OASIS Open
Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) here?

If so, this is equal as far as OpenOffice 2 is concerned:

'Beginning with version 2.0 uses the open standard
OASIS OpenDocument XML format as the default file format. The OASIS
OpenDocument format is a vendor and implementation independent file
format, and thus guarantees freedom and independence.'


And as I said it didn't seem to be very far away from the old

So perhaps it makes sense to give it a new and more general name but
not to develop and maintain a second plug-in. Unless the formats are
in fact really different.
