Maybe i'm not going to make friends, but OOXML "strict" actually *is* an open
standard. The real problem is, that MS-Office until 2013 was not capable of
creating "strict" files, but wrote OOXML "transitional" instead (which may -
and as a matter of fact always did - contain proprietary stuff). 
So almost all OOXML files out in the wild today are in fact not 'real' OOXML
but just proprietary, legacy office formats encoded in an XML-structure.

IIRC, that "strict" OOXML, as rammed through ISO, contains a lot of
proprietary blobs.
