OOXML will spread anyway because MS Office 2007 and 2010 use this format by default. Nothing you can do about it I'm afraid....

Yes you can do something about it. Don't enable writing in that format. Use PDF's for communicating. If a MS user needs to be able to modify a document, use .doc format. There is no need to use .docx format. MS Office 2008 and 2011 can still read .doc files.

None of you get the point, do you.
1. It is arrogant to return a document in a format different to that which was sent to you. (That's why email clients always reply in the same format in which the original message was received)

2. Changing the format may well lose formatting in the document that is not supported in the older document type.

3. .doc, .xls and .ppt are Microsoft proprietary formats anyway - it's just that they are much easier to analyse...
