In fact, I did NOT say that OO the *software* should not support .docx

I said that OO users and advocates should demand much, much more than
they have been doing, that files are exchanged in open formats.

There is a big difference. And the fact that it has been ignored is
why things stand now as they stand, and all the effort put into
compatibility with .docx still doesn't spare people from being told
"to work with certain customers, use MS Office"
