Weren't  those reasons related to lack of space in the LiveCD?

Ubuntu always had openoffice on their live, but I was told they could
do it because they did not use our very same upstream (go-oo inteast
ooo, again IIRC) and their upstream made it easier to split the suite
into finer packaging.

Maybe the whole story is bogus, but having Writer and/or Impress
and/or Calc is a must to stand well in reviews, IMHO
