Are you actually suggesting that this is either complete or accurate?

You can get the binary file format description from

Ditto... a 'description of a file format' doesn't equate to somethinhg that can be used/relied upon to build something that accurately renders and/or recreates said format.

The ECMA standard is available in MSO 2013 as "OOXML strict", but LO
fails to read it.

So, I've heard, does MSO...

The new OOXML works only with MSO 2013. So this is another time they make their new version's OOXML not compatible with their previous versions of MSO. 2010 cannot read the new 2013 version, 2007 cannot read the one that came out with 2010. That is why I stick with .doc for Word 97/2000/XP/2003. Then everyone I know that uses Word will be able to use my files.

SO, it only makes sense that it will be a bit till LO gets the needed import/export filters to work with this newest version of MSO. I wonder if the format is actually finalized yet. Last I heard it was not, as well as MSO 2013 was in beta testing.

MSO 2013 supports ODF 1.2.

Really? Have you tested this? How accurately does it render ODF 1.2 files created with LibO?

If an authority demands standards or even demands ODF, this can all be
fulfilled with MSO, no need to use LO.
