The ".org" part of the name always felt awkward, but perhaps there
was some good reason? Has this been documented? Why did Sun
call it rather than just OpenOffice?

Looking into the project now from the Swedish horizon, it doesn't
matter much what you call this branch, since everybody from the
developer community seems to be over at LibreOffice. If you hope
to merge the two branches, both communities should have a say on
the name.
