Well, I just got back from vacation this afternoon, and it looks like there were some great developments at the end of the month. I just saw up on Doug's blog that Massachusetts now supports Open XML: http://blogs.msdn.com/dmahugh/archive/2007/08/01/massachusetts-etrm-v4-0-recommends-open-xml-and-odf-1-1.aspx

It's great to see their policies evolve as they continue to evaluate file formats.
