If you're sticking with LTS because of the stability, don't risk the
stability - keep the default application suite it uses.

For at least the medium-term future, LibreOffice and OOo are going to
use 100% compatible file formats, since they stick to the ODF
standard. So it is unlikely to cause any issues with the upgrade to
12.04 when LibreOffice is the default, unless Oracle use the
"embrace-and-extend" tactic with the ODF standard. This won't affect
you if you're sticking to the version in 10.04 LTS though.

It really depends why you are keeping to the LTS versions.
