It's a good idea. But remember that we control the URLs people connect 
to when upgrading, so we could actually route the users who start the 
upgrade process to one or two questions (a polite form of "Where did you 
get your current copy of OpenOffice?" / "Why didn't you upgrade 
earlier?") before proceeding with the actual download from the 
SourceForge mirrors.

And this could be done already now, even though we would possibly need 
to place the survey (or at least the script collecting the answers) on a 
different server since the current environment might not allow it.
