The GTK theme is likely the way it is because of the screen's special nature.

ODF would be nice but let's face it, .doc is the most compatible format with the rest of the world at this point. And Abiword's ODF support isn't really up to snuff at this point, AFAIK. Maybe (hopefully) they'll change it in future releases.
