Openoffice.org is a metapackage. Its function is to pull in those other
packages by depending on them. It's a convenience feature for people
who don't want to figure out exactly which Openoffice packages they need
and which they don't (not a trivial task). If you only want some of the
Openoffice stuff install the packages individually.
