Its an added bonus to know that other competing office suites have done

I'm not contradicting myself. I am stating the obvious, that not everyone will
notice it, just like not everyone noticed the 'Edit File' button in the
toolbar. I may have incorrectly wrote that keyboard users wouldnt notice it,
but what i meant was keyboard users wouldnt care that its in the statusbar,
just like they wouldnt care that its in the Edit menu, as they will use the
shortcut key anyway.
