If you excuse the comment from an outsider, I suggest the question you 
need to answer is: What can Apache OpenOffice offer that related 
projects like LibreOffice cannot?

(And, incidentally, although I'm a journalist, I am notabout to announc 
that AOO is shutting down. A couple of years ago, the project looked 
shaky, yet it managed to survive. The thread is fascinating, but 
obviously speculative at this point).
