Thing is, Microsoft haven't spun it to their advantage. They've mentioned
that Gnumeric is implementing OOXML, but that actually works against them
(due to the complexity of the spec and the completeness of the impl). They
haven't spun our membership of TC45-M to their advantage, and they won't,
because we're not their friends, and won't react kindly if they do. :-)
