O verdadeiro plano da microsoft em relação ao ODF vs ooxml?!

Acabei de ler um interessantíssimo artigo de
Gary Edwards da Open Document Foundation sobre a impossibilidade de quer a microsoft implementar totalmente o ODF quer o contrário, programas como o Openoffice.org implementarem totalmente o ooxml.

Mas o que me chamou mesmo à atenção foi o que abaixo transcrevo, será que toda a fúria da m$ em aprovar o ooxml terá a ver com dominar a rede internet criando um pseudo-formato para subverter os standards W3C?
Será que o plano sempre foi o velho sonho da m$ em dominar completamente a world wide web?

"To understand why we turned to the W3C's CDF “Compound Document Format”, and continue to fight, one has to grasp how seriously important this MSOffice bound business process issue is to the future of collaborative computing. If we can't neutralize and re purpose MSOffice, the future will belong to MS-OOXML and the MS Stack. Note the MS Stack noticeably replaces W3C Open Web technologies with Microsoft's own embraced “enhancements”. Starting with MS-OOXML/Smart Tags as a replacement for HTML-XHTML-RDF Metadata.

HTML and the Open Web are the targets here. ODf is being used as a diversion from the real end game – the taking of the Internet."
