the main gripe for me are not page headers, but loss of all dynamic references to sections when saving as DOC file.
("as defined in Section 17 below" becomes "as defined in Section Undefined Reference"). This is a loss of critical information in a contract and mistakes here could cause professional liability.
I'm surprised, because in my experience cross-references to sections do work just fine when writing .doc from OpenOffice.org. What does not work so well is tables of contents: I have yet to figure out how to generate a table that does not have slightly off page numbers towards the end of the document, when viewed with Word.
