Readers, M$ is allegedly seeking to invest in "interoperability" and open source: http://www.infoworld.com/d/open-source-software/microsoft-forms-subsidiary-engage-open-source-communities-190790. Perhaps more for 'Groklaw', but isn't this a potential trojan horse to pollute GPLv3? We will see true "interoperability" only when odf and openformula become the defaults within m$o. Until then, please avoid creation of m$ formats using LO and continue to promote odf.
If MS publishes announcements like this one, this is the best indicator that nothing will actually happen. It's the usual appeasement blah blah towards the public sector. They just have to wait for their users (and LibO) to spread more OOXML documents. Then they have pushed their new de-facto standard.
