OK, sounds good.

When importing/exporting to the OOo formats, yes, of course.

But the question will arise when we use the OASIS format as the native format
for KOffice (which I have started to work on). We can't save as .sxw then,
since the OASIS format is a bit different from the current OOo format, so OOo
wouldn't really understand those documents. ".sxw" is a legacy name anyway,
I don't think it makes sense to adopt it for "standard" OASIS documents.
That's where a "standard" extension might make more sense.
But the debate is open, I'm not yet sure myself, what would be best for users.
