Well, all I'm trying to do is to make sure that whoever will make the
decision understand the rationale and background behind the placement of
the document modified icon in the status bar.  I've done what I did
based of several iterations of trials and errors, lots of discussions
with the Oracle folks & some vocal OOo users, lots of bug reports filed
etc etc etc.  So the decision was not made in some random fashion.

As long as that's understood, and if we still believe that icon needs to
go, then I'm fine with it.  I would personally be disappointed for sure,
but we are here for the greater vision.
