I am concerned about that stylesheet. It seems that
it is generated by some sort of external tool.

Is that stylesheet provided by OpenOffice.org? If so,
then wouldn't it be under the LGPL license?

Ross, there is a similar situation with the old plugin
org.apache.forrest.plugin.OpenOffice.org-output
I wandered around svn history and it seems that there
have not been any real changes to this plugin. I presume
that means that no-one is using it.

Perhaps these plugins should be moved to SourceForge.
