Changing the object created by imported docx

Morning :)

I've been thinking on potential solutions to #70457 [1]. It's related
with rotation information lost when importing a docx that contains some

Writer bitmaps are only allowed to be rotated in 90º steps, but in Word
they can be rotated to any angle. When importing a document containing a
45º bitmap the rotation is lost, and it keeps lost when the document is
saved back.

I wonder if importing embedded bitmaps coming from docx as Draw objects
would be an acceptable solution for this bug (Draw objects allow to be
rotated to any arbitrary position).

Such a change should be discussed first, imho. What do you think?

Thanks in advance for your time.
