Also, using ODF formats avoids the tweaking MS apparently does with
their formats with each new release.

I disagree. ODF has the same problem. That is why LO has an option to save
in ODF 1.0/1.1 or 1.2 and even 1.2 extended.

ODF has EXACTLY the same problem that accuses DOCX of: even if the file
extension is the same, the contents varies according to the office version
you used to save it.

The ONLY difference is that you can always get the latest fully compatible
version of LO for free, unlike MS Office which requires that you to buy the
latest office version to have access to the full features of the updated
file format.

I'm sorry to break this idealism about ODF's perfection...
