I always took this to be boilerplate for saving in non-native formats.

I supposed the same thing. But since I didn't *know*, and it's not

The warning says it's *possible* that by not saving in native OOo format, you will lose special features of OOo that are not available in Word format. That's not surprising, but if your documents are simple, it's not a huge risk.

You get the same warning saving in ASCII format. Not too surprising there either.
