My motivation was partiall caused by a MS Word document, which I had to
edit and the mark up was distorted by LO (most likely this file was
written 15 ago and then saved in different formats). So I hoped a reveal
code feature would help to understand what is the problem and where.

I am using LaTeX on a daily basis (with GNU Emacs) and use LO and
friends only on certain occasions. So you don't have to convince me on that.
