Maybe it needs more money/time invested?

Perhaps. I don't have the numbers but Novell at the time invested in this
for something like 4-5 year and put several people on it so it was never
exactly a side show either...

This 2007 presentation seems to indicate the effort mentioned
by Charles-H.:

Seems to involve the merging(?) of helperapi from Sun (written in Java for
Word/Excel) and oovbaapi from Novell (written in C++ but for Excel only).
Presumably Noel Powers would be able to provide greater detail as to what
the effort achieved back then. Both tools remain in the source tree and are
still seeing updates although to what degree / effect would require a
developer to clarify. 

Best wishes, Owen.
