Your argument applies equally well to the whole ODF-OOXML format war. I always tell people to save their documents in ODF format, or, if they must use Microsoft formats, to use the old binary (doc, xls, etc) formats. Most non-technical people just shrug and go on using their shiny new Office 2007 and its ooxml formats, but it won't be my problem when they lost all their files in 10 or 20 years.
