It would definitely make sense to continue using soffice. And, unless it 
gets political (and I hope it won't), Ubuntu could modify its packaging.

If another name is needed in addition to soffice, then the best option 
would probably be ooffice, which is already in use with, e.g., the Red 
Hat packaging of 3.3. No need to add "a" or "apache" as a prefix: Apache 
Subversion uses "svn", not "asvn"; and the same for Tomcat and other 
Apache software.
