Several people have tested this successfully. You can even get slightly 
newer packages from here:
http://li.nux.ro/download/nux/libreoffice/el6/x86_64/ that Karanbir hasn't 
yet got around to putting in testing (there's a *-release rpm there, too).
I would advise against using libeoffice.org supplied RPMs at this stage as 
RHEL are also getting ready to release LO 3.4.5 in EL6 that will (hopefully) 
gracefully upgrade my packages.
