Seems things are blown out of proportion here.
The injunction is against the custom XML function...which Microsoft director of public affairs, Kevin Kutz says, "is a little used feature" that they are quickly removing from the 2003 and 2007 products. It's not included with the 2010 product whatsoever.
This isn't the ability to use docx formats or xml in general.

Well, according to i4i, the infringement was intentional and was a deliberate attempt to remove i4i from the marketspace. Sounds to me like Microsoft might have been stepping on some toes in order to retain their stranglehold in the marketspace. In my court of opinion, I prefer fair business practices and a better product...not a strong-arm tactic from a monopoly.
