Legacy documents: The organization might not use the specific file
format anymore, but they do have them in their archives.

That said, if there is a _maintained_ user installable extension that
enables LibO to read/write/edit those file formats, then eliminating
them from the standard lineup should be acceptable to all.

Caveat: Once upon a time, one of the features was that support for
legacy documents was built in.  By migrating file format input/output to
extensions, third parties might not accept that legacy file formats are
still supported.

Two different document types.
