Is this US only? I can't find it on searching "Office" 
reveals, buried after many results, an old copy of StarOffice and an old 
OpenOffice manual+DVD. Searching "OpenOffice" only shows the latter.

Adding at least the most popular localized versions would be good too.

And they will get a downloader app, which is in most cases a potential 
symptom of malware, even though in this particular case it's fine and it 
offers the unmodified official package. Is there anything we can do to 
have them offer the official package immediately? Would signing the 
installer be enough, or there are other problems? (I know that signing 
the installer would require a lot of discussion, but if we are aware of 
other problems it would be good to know all of them).
