The elephant in the room is IMHO: "What does this huge exercise in replication bring us, OpenOffice.org users?"
Maybe the reason that elephant isn't being talked about is that everyone knows why it's there. Asking what the replication brings to OpenOffice.org users is like asking what good the violence in Darfur brought to the civilians there.
Also, it's a pretty small elephant because nobody chose to have replication per se; i.e. it's not that some people have perpexingly neglected to take into account what replication brings to the users in deciding to have replication.
