An office document is not a bitmap and the WYSIWYG part has always been
more a best effort thing than a hard commitment.

An office document is a set of construction rules. This is why you have
individual hight-level components (characters) you can change later. Try
that with a jpg where pixels are frozen and shapes are not shapes you
can manipulate but collections of pixels.
