    Additionally, aside from inserting the workbook from a base64 string it would be quite useful to insert the workbook from OOXML and generally Get/Set Excel (and PowerPoint) content from OOXML

    Adding Ooxml to PowerPoint and Excel would be fantastic. I imagine that some Ooxml processor is already in use by PowerPoint and Excel simply in opening and saving files. If giving developers the broader access to Ooxml that Word has is too cumbersome, it would be useful to at least be able to get/set the entirety of the PowerPoint presentation/Excel workbook.

    This could be very useful for apps that try and handle/manipulate the document in real-time. Some examples include:

    1) A company that wants it's employees to conform to a certain standard while writing documents (e.g. only black + white figures, no built-in table of contents, particular paragraph spacing) and to be informed/corrected when they've manipulated the document incorrectly

    2) An Office App was being used as a frontend for a database having the ability to detect changes via event instead of polling would be great.

    Finally and perhaps most interestingly, once Word, PowerPoint, Excel, etc. enable co-editing these events will have to be used by the Office team internally anyway and it would be fantastic if developers of other cloud storage providers could be granted the same ability (at least from the frontend/JS perspective) to do co-editing with Office documents as OneDrive would be granted. I have some experience dealing with this issue and would be happy to continue this conversation so feel free to reach out via email.
