I back Roberto on this one. Despite my pleas, some of my colleagues have already shied away from using LyX because of these unnecessary hurdles, and that’s a shame in my opinion as LyX has so much more to offer than MS Word and similar. And if word can “hide” a zip in a docx-file, perhaps it is useful to hide it in a lyxx-file too?

That does not mean that does right for everybody who uses the software. I hate MS Word too, but I also do not like having folders plenty of pictures that I have to carefully select when I pass the file to someone or share it in dropbox and alike.

Rather than have everything hidden in a file as MS Word does, simply put the needed graphics files in a folder shared with you lyx document. No special file formats are needed. I agree, I hate MS Word.
