I just had a look at the table. It looks great and it is also much 
easier to grasp the differences between LO and MS Office. I think you 
can continue with the other Calc and Impress as the table looks really 
very good.

Regarding minor features, I think, they can be added to the table under 
a separator (e.g. a grey row with the title "Minor feature differences" 
or something similar) indicating that the following items are minor 
Is it possible to disable the sorting function of the table |><| because 
it does not really make sense in this table.

Best greetings,

P.S. BTW, is the lack of  XML import / export in LibreOffice 2.6 
actually true or is LO capable of XML import/export?
