Seems no one is interested in being able to edit via a browser

I can not imagine why I would want to.
Why would I want to ?

Because from anywhere I could connect to my home computer and edit my
libreoffice documents directly on this home computer without caring about
their synchronization or about
the fact whether libreoffice is installed on the computer that I happened
be at.

​This might not be supported anymore... it reference version 3.5, which is
quite old.

Anyway, if you're really willing to have such "functionnality", you could
always emulate it with some existing techniques (since setting up LO as a
webserver and setting acces to it from the web needs minimal technical
knowledge, I believe you're ready to use the alternatives):
- Remote desktop, there is some kind of client that run in a web browser too
- X server (even on windows!). Allow you to run any application from a
remote server, including LO. It can also perform slightly better than a
"dummy" VNC-based solution, but your mileage may vary. Also available in
the form of browser-compliant java plugins (not tested myself, but it
- Get in the code and bring this functionnality up to par yourself (just
kidding; this looks like a tremendous amount of work!)

Anyway, I don't think that adding webserver-gui functionality should lie
inside of an office suite, when there is alternatives.​
