Take out the "English" on this and it's not a bad synopsis.

With its Plug-in, the Foundation solved a problem everyone said was unsolvable. Preserving metadata, binary information and other "dark" or foreign matter is necessary for enterprises to cope with the installed-base of MS documents. It's that simple.

Without it, no adoption, which means no ODF adoption. Massachusetts established this requirement. No ticky, no shirty.
