Also rephrase the sentence "Features tagged with an<img

in other office productivity suites."

This would also add a nice little feature.

Yes, the sentence would make it clearer. But some are under the
impression that it means OOo.

AFAIK this sentence exactly means that *OOo* does not have these 
features as they are only implemented in LibO. As LibO is a downstream 
derivate of OOo, apparently any feature from OOo makes or can make it 
into LibO (unless removed by the LibO devs for some reason - is there 
any???), but LibO-specific features do mostly *not* flow back into OOo 
(obviously for Licensing reasons). (Are there any exceptions? Is there 
a developer who wants his code go into OOo, too?)

Caution: The sentence does *not* tell anything about other suites (as 
they could perfectly derive from LibO, or be independantly developed in 
Redmond, so the might perfectly have those features, too).
