My recent experience with docx to odt has been that for any document with
tables it is not good enough.  I get a lot of routine docs in docX format
from UK government departments and very few can be used without a lot of
work. I also don't know how well docs I send to them as exports will appear
to them. Since Word processing documents are the most common and docX is
now in much wider use I think the priority needs to be to get the docX odt
filter to as good a standard as possible particularly with tables, headers,
footers and page structures. Without this it is going to be very difficult
for anyone that has to work with government departments to adopt AOO as an
alternative to MSO. Google Docs does it better and so it means Google Docs
is then a bigger competitor for AOO too. I also think that whichever of AOO
or LibO implements these filters the best is likely to get adoption over
the other.
