unopkg is in the same situation, of course.
Thanks. I edited the proposal page

Apache OpenOffice is the
newcomer to the distribution, so IMHO it is your responsibility to
resolve any clashes with already present components
This is going towards getting political... Let's say that, at the very
least, nobody will ever invoke "openoffice.org" if he wants to run
"libreoffice", regardless of which software is the newcomer. So at least
this source of confusion should go away, again by pure common sense and
not even taking trademarks into account.

Sorry, but I do not want having to explain to users (and bug reporters)
why running ooffice (oowriter,...) on command line suddenly fails
It would be possible to think about a (long-term) transition and start
adding "lowriter" and similar aliases, while keeping the current
"oowriter" alias still linked to LibreOffice for continuity with F18. I
surely don't want to break the user experience, but in the long term
(after F19) confusing aliases should be reassigned or (probably better)
