While I would agree about OOo Math, I think the decision to hide Draw is
shortsighted, and based on a misunderstanding of the nature of the
program. It is not analogous to the draw features in MS Office, where
the drawing functionality is entirely subordinate to the context of Word
or Excel. OOo Draw is a fully fledged document-centric vector drawing
application, and definitely deserves its own menu item.
