Interoperability of LibreOffice and Microsoft Office 2013

I checked and Office 2013 Preview now creates ODF 1.2 documents.  They use ODF 1.1 compatible packages with very lean manifests (no inessential files).  The big thing, beside greater interop fidelity with the files I've tried so far is the support for OpenFormula in ODF Spreadsheet documents saved from Excel.  That is a big deal.
