Once again: Putting the cart before the horse.  LO does not "define"

As the *leading* 'user' of the format, I would argue otherwise.

How else are new features and improvements supposed to make it into the standard, if someone doesn't actually start implementing them in the real world?

I guess you prefer the Microsoft way of pushing out huge new changes all at once with a new release of Office, thereby forcing all of their users to experience pain unless until they all upgrade?

Sorry, I much prefer the Libreoffice/OASIS/ODF way.

If you want document fidelity across different platforms/programs, use PDF.
