At the NPOIFS level, if you do writes to an open read-write NPOIFS 
instance, those will get reflected back to the original file in 
near-realtime without having to call close/write.

At the HSSF / HWPF / etc level, if you open from a read-write NPOIFS, then 
write out to a new stream, nothing changes on the original file as a new 
NPOIFS is generated + populated.
