I have four comments on relative paths in OOo/LO:

1) It doesn't work. I changed to relative paths, created a new file with a
relative path, moved both files (source and reference) to another drive and
it kept looking for the file in the original location

2) It doesn't make any sense to save a path as relative and show it as

3) It doesn't make sense that the option is called "Save URLs relative to
file system". I consider myself an advanced user and I would never consider
that this option refers to the location of files my PC. URLs are usually
associated (maybe incorrectly) with resources on the web. In any case it's
not an obvious name.

4) It doesn't make any sense that the OOo/LO default is the opposite of what
users are expecting. If OO / TDF want to create an alternative to the
established Office they should follow the same functionality, improving but
not disrupting.
