Office 2003 SP3 blocks off older file formats

Looks like Office 2003's SP3 has sparked some controversy already. Some file formats are blocked off once you've installed it, including files created by versions prior to Office 97, and old versions of CorelDRAW, Lotus, and Quattro. You can check out the fine print on Microsoft's site; the Slashdot reference is here. Not much damage expected, eh?
