Yep - a document portal would be useful for various business (or not)
sites. However I suppose that a real interest would be in creating a
website using OOo and Drupal as an "integrated system". Suppose to be able
to publish a "book" (drupal term) using a single document that will split
in chapters and the like. Or similarly organzing a structured knowledge
base or an ecommerce listing and then publish (and manage!) a whole set of
nodes with a "single click" (ok, it will never be "one" but I suppose the
concept is clear).
This should be the target, IMNSHO. Something like this could "sell" - I
mean: obviously not the product itself (free to dowload and use and the
like) but support to it, courses on best practices and the like. I might
have customers interested in it, I will investigate.
