Obviously not, judging from ~year old experience with parallel
releases on some specific hardware (video artefacts with OOo, all
clear and somewhat faster with SO7).

Ian, you don't have to convince me :-)  I've found myself using
OpenOffice build 633 or like that, and use OOo 1.1.x now, and
have served some considerable amount of OOo packages off our FTP
server (we do some half a terabyte monthly these days, and the
traffic is growing).

So it's not bashing but rather kudos to Sun folks who seem to
have found what to use to convince customers (besides brand).
They should earn something to cover the costs of running
OpenOffice.org and having fulltimers working on the project.
