I keep seeing posts about CDF trying to fix the MS document and ODF document interoperability problem. That may or may not have technical issues. Frankly I'm not technical enough to know, and I don't realy care about that either.

But I do care about ODF applications working seemlessly. If I am collaborating with a team on Google docs (and I do) and I want to pull it into OpenOffice.org to work on it offline I don't want the document to be all screwed up. If they are both natively ODF I expect that there will be no problems on the round trip. From what I read it appears that there's guarantee that will work for now. And, if that's the case, it should be addressed.
