Thanks Ariel.

I've opened an LO (LibreOffice) bug report regarding the issue:
<https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=46305>
[Text Boundaries have been replaced by page only Crop Marks]
and attached a PDF showing the difference between LO 3.5, LO 3.4, and
Microsoft Word 2010.

Note: I was curious about this statment in
<http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/DocumentBorder>:

"Competitor Study

    MS Office 2003/2007/2010 : Put marks on four corners of page, to
show the boder of documents."

Which, apparently was the basis for the change, as I understand it.
Unfortunately whoever wrote that (Ma Li/Maliinchina) apparently didn't
understand that those are 'Crop Marks' in Microsoft Word (including Word
2010).

So I downloaded Microsoft Office 2010 (trial version) to test/compare &
posted the results to the bug report.

Hopefully AOO won't follow suit and implement the LO path for this.
