Please mark at least the calc ones as NEW and put perf in the
whiteboard line. We are always interested in documents showing
performance problems as we need them to actually improve our

And a general remark in this direction for Calc: If you see somebody
complaining about Calc's import or export performance please ask them
to open a bug report with perf in the whiteboard line and an attached
test document. We are very interested in real world documents showing
performance problems.
