I wasn't there obviously so I don't know the nuance of the discussion. 
But the fact that nobody uses Excel on Linux means we have a bit of 
freedom to decide what to return there since we are not bound by the 
compatibility concerns, rather than just declaring "we shouldn't change 
it".  That'd be my take.

Of course, I don't have a skin in the game, so I'll leave the final 
decision to whoever is more appropriate.
