Well, actually, what you're describing is far from reality ...
Firstly there is next to no copyleft code in OpenOffice to be got rid of. The reality is most of the code was written by Sun - outside contributions weren't welcome, so the motives you ascribe to Rob/IBM are utterly pointless.
And secondly, if you do submit a copyleft patch to LO, chances are it'll be rejected on licencing grounds. The primary LO licence is not the (L)GPL but the MPL. Which is a pretty weak copyleft, merely saying that if you can keep your changes in a separate source file, then you don't have to release those, but any source files you do change have to be released.
I'm not impressed with Rob's LO-bashing, I admit, but if you want to do some Rob-bashing it helps if you don't embarass yourself with your lack of knowledge of LO.
