Few seconds can make a huge difference depending on your usage pattern.
Many times office documents are used as mere reference in a readonly mode just like html and pdf.
Now, try to browse through say 30+ documents having to wait your share of seconds every time you need to look for 3 words or a picture.
This is seriousely disturbing your workflow.
The way OOo slow document loading speed (startup + open time) disables some typical workflows, makes quick loading a feature that OO.org sorely lacks.
A gues a fast, standalone viewer would greatly relieve this burden.
That's why I put high hopes on KOffice. Their recent ODF compatibility level is very prommising and KWord/KCalc KPART is exactly what I'm talking about.
