 * Update Office version in file format confirmation dialog to not refer to Office 2013
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=108894
   + old: “Microsoft Word 2007-2013 XML”
   + new: "Microsoft Excel OOXML"
     + https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=195e12bdc516c9272b7ae353ad6279e457215911
   + to discuss: "Microsoft Word 2007-2016 OOXML" or "Microsoft Word 2007-2016"
   => check if "Office Open XML Text (docx)" is an extra filter
   + get rid of that many "Microsoft" labels (Stuart); not clear if that's legal (Cor)
   + Microsoft: "Word (*.docx)" (old versions including the year) (Stuart)
   + Word Document (.docx), Word 2003 XML Document (.XML), Word 97-2003 Document (.doc) (Thomas)
   + Calligra: "Word 2007 document (*.docx)
   => go with "Word 2007-2016 (*.docx)" (without Microsoft), adjust other Word entries.

 * Double-click does not expand/collaps the options in the navigator ( other than the headings )
  + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=117063
  + Double and single click behavior should ideally have always the same result for users (Thomas)
  + Options, Customize > styles, Expert settings open on double click (Stuart)
  => Follow Jim's comment 5 and open root nodes (incl. "Headings") on double click

 * bring back Format > Columns in Writer
   + https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=115344
   + https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/53217/
   + maybe help pages for such UI changes would help users to help themselves or 
     to find other solutions instead of ranting against LO (Thomas)
   + Jay, Heiko, Stuart, Thomas: -1 (since structure is more straightforward)
   + Cor (strong opinion): +1 (because of ease of use)
   + Concerns in the original patch: Regina, Mike K, Cor
   => make an exception and accept the patch
