I am curious: what happens if one just changes the file extension from .doc to .docx?

Roughly the same as if you call your cat Rover.

sorry I cut the thread but the OP was concerned about the 'politics' of submitting '.doc' files to people obsessed with '.docx' files so why not just change the extension and meet the 'political' issue but avoid getting one's hands dirty with '.docx' formatting? that was the point of the question. would Word get confused by the extension change?

Yes: apparently so.  That was my point: the subterfuge does not work.
