Size is irrelevent. We can't guarantee anything will be integrated
until the world sees the code and Sun shows how well they can work
with the community. We cannot adopt OpenOffice at this juncture - all
we can do is announce that we plan to work to integrate the two office
suites, as we already decided to say.

Yes, but Mozilla has had a lot of bad PR lately and I think this would
be a contentious point in the community, and potentially bad PR for
us, to make the linkage appear stronger.
