Because of private API maybe? As long as you do not use private API you are 
safe, but private API can change within patch versions if necessary.

A proprietary undocumented text format as the de facto standard -- and that's
what .doc is -- is a shame for all parties involved. It's like using a special
patented ink that can only be read with special patented sun glasses. Who
would want to use that for all their scientific, private and business
documents? Probably nobody. Why they do so with computers is beyond me.
