Just to correct you on point 3; Microsoft has never implemented OOXML. What Office 2007 produces is not either version of the spec presented to ISO/IEC, nor even remotely compliant with the spec originally approved by ECMA. Microsoft will in principle have to play catch-up as much as anyone, but it's hard to see a reason why they would even try. As it stands, competitors will have to try to implement the unimplementable standard, plus the real-world output of MS Office. If they seriously tried to implement OOXML, they'd lose their competitive advantage. As far as Microsoft are concerned, standards - even their own - are for suckers.
