It's a completely moot point now, but give them the benefit of doubt. 
They were stressed enough to get the migration running at that time, I'm 
pretty sure they would have fixed this later. And I guess you'll 
understand that making it even easier for the TDF to leach bug reports 
from OOo wasn't at the very top of their priorities given that there was 
plenty enough important stuff that needed be fixed. But as I said, all 
this is completely moot now.
