One cannot not have an office suit in a LIVE CD so LibreOffice must stay.

Not that I'm advocating one way or the other, but I completely disagree with this statement. If you value an office suite on a live cd, I say that is just a thing you happen to value. I have zero use for an office suite on a live cd.

I happen to value documentation on live media specifically because half the time I'm even USING a live media is because I'm either installing or repairing or otherwise do not have normal use of the machine, which may mean no access to internet (at least via that machine).

I think the underlining question here is: what is the purpose of a LIVE-anything?

To me it means that it is a way of showing people what is available in a forthcoming version of the openSUSE distribution.

As such, I would want people to see that there is a office suite available which can replace something like Word.

However, just on this point, I am willing to concede that the only part which needs to be available (if this is possible of course) is the word-processor part with indications that the suite also comes with a database, graphics package, spreadsheet.

On the other hand, your needs for a LIVE-anything seems to be totally different to the norm and for which you already have sufficient knowledge and experience - you aren't a "newbie" are you? -, or for which you really should be using something like the System Rescue CD and not an openSUSE LIVE-anything.
