There are in fact a few useful features in LO that AOO does not have:
1) Opening/saving remote files from several sources (OwnCloud, WebDAV,
Google Drive, etc)

Not exactly. File access is provided by the UCB component ("universal
content broker", in main/ucb), and remote files can be opened/saved in AOO
too. It's just that LO has an extra user interface for these files and we
don't. You can open documents from "http://..."; and other URLs from our
normal file dialog instead, by entering the URL in place of the filename.
We support http and derivatives like https and WebDav, ftp, file, package
(ie. zip), several native ones like GVFS and GIO on Gnome, and a few others.

Those are excellent news. I just tested it and it works perfectly! Thanks!

Nevertheless, it is quite different from a user's point of view to have a regular Open dialog where you can browse through your remote files from knowing that you need to type the full URL to a document.

This is exactly where LibreOffice is further ahead in the commitment to "eliminate the digital divide"...
