That's not a big surprise, just keeping within the stated policies of
CentOS.

However, I will point out that for those who want OOO 3.1, all they have
to do is skip installing the old version that comes with CentOS, and
install the RPMs that can be downloaded straight from openoffice.org.
The ones for RHEL 5 work very well, and integrate with the Gnome desktop
automagically.
