SWT is only a small part of the picture. Last I looked at Symphony it
had substantial chunks of OO.o UI left for advanced dialos, and clearly
for all the in-document a11y it will need to bridge to the native UNO
So - I think the SWT angle is a bit of a red-herring. The same bridge
code will still be needed, independent of the choice of toolkit for the
wrapper shell around it.

So - I don't think this is accurate.

I suspect times changes - IBM recently hired a handful of people to do
this integration work - hdu just announced himself on their list (eg.)
