First, Calligra is not that compatible with OOo or LibreO.  The slides 
Calligra Stage made would become very funny when showing in OOo or LibreO 

Second, Calligra could not generate Microsoft office format file.  The fact is 
that, there are still many people using Microsoft Office and 
OpenOffice/LibreOffice.  It will add a lot of difficulties to us before 
Calligra solves all these compatibility problems.

Besides, Calligra is still a nightmare for Chinese (or even CJK) users...  The 
font processing seems to be problematic.

I vote against this idea.
