To be clear, are you saying that Symphony associations remain after you install
AOO?  Since the OO.o no longer possessed the associations, I suspect that AOO
did not seize them.

In general, polite installation of packages tends to leave any associations
that already exist alone.  Some software will ask if you want to change the
associations anyhow.  I don't think AOO does that for anything but the
extensions associated with Microsoft Office files.

Is your request that AOO, on installation, should associate the ODF-format file
extensions to it, even if they are already assigned to an application that has
not been removed?
