In a matter of weeks, users will be in something of a fork quandry w.r.t. which stable release they install next.

So?

It's not like users would be stuck with the "brand" they choose next. On the second next release, they may revert their choice. After all, writer uses an open format so I guess other components do too. So having a cycle installing OO then Libre is possible with no data loss.
