To clarify the misunderstanding: OpenOffice 4.0.1 can still open the 
OpenOffice 1.0 default formats (.sxw, .sxc, .sxi).

The formats for which support was removed in 4.x are the ancient 
StarOffice (proprietary software) formats (.sdw, .sdc, ...), but calling 
this "OpenOffice's own format" is incorrect. See the 4.0 Release Notes 
for more.
