Thanks Carl and Drew: (Carl -- your points on the bottom of this post)

RE: Writer -- re: desktop publishing ... there is a book writing
module/extension with accompanying styles that was recently released. I
believe that this was warmly received by many authors using LibreOffice.
Maybe leave the Writer descriptions as is?

I'm fine with what is written. When I do serious DTP, I use other
great open source tools. However, the focus here is on LibreOffice,
not the universe of open source goodness. The description is accurate.

Re: BASE -- adding info on the backend. I have tried to move text around but
there is just not enough space left. Should we just leave it as is? Can
anyone add a short blurb on backend? That particular paragraph -- I think I
can squeeze another 8 words in there.

Try this...

Base is a full-featured desktop database front end, designed to meet
the needs of a broad array of users. The  front end is a powerful
asset adding major functionality and potential to the other
LibreOffice applications.

Base is a full-featured desktop database, designed to meet the needs
of most users. It is a valuable asset for adding power to other
LibreOffice applications. Base can also be used as a front end to most
enterprise-class databases.

Use and modify as you wish. I think this describes Base in a way that
captures its low AND high end uses.
