From a user's point of view currently it is an alternative. But you are incorrect: 
I never made any promoting, marketing etc here. KDE3 in openSUSE just works
and if somebody will package Trinity in OBS it will be excellent.

Well an alternative to dropping KOffice is porting ODF support 
from KDE4's KOffice. Do you like this idea? You said you have much of resources even to reimplement 
KDE3 support in Libre Office if it completely changes its interface, so adding ODF would be just as 
to swat a moquito, won't it?
