abiword is available on windows too. It's gnome integration part is

and openoffice being as resource hungry as it is, conflicts with the idea of
light xfce desktop
imho. But sure if there is space openoffice will be considered too, I do not
decide what goes
on the CD :)

yes ivman seems to work well, but will have to be configured manually as the
default ivman install
is kubuntu oriented, I didn't have the time to test and upload an xfce ready

Also I think some good documentation is essential, I find the Ubuntu

Right now there is ubuntu-docs package in the default xubuntu-install, so
the firefox
default page is not broken.(points to the doc index)
You mean help documenting xubuntu or xfce itself - it's more or less the
same, but either
way you will probably have to collaborate with the xfce devels/docwriters
