If this works, I've blogged to DasBlog from Word 2007. Why would I want to do this?
Looks like it works fine except for pictures. According to Ken (a developer on the DasBlog team) the Word 2007 implementation of the metaWebLog API's "newMediaObject" method is broken. They are passing a string but calling it an int, and DasBlog is pretty strict.
I can see where I might find myself on a computer that had only Word 2007, and rather than using the Web Interface I might want to blog from Word.
There's also the comfort level - that seems to me to be the most compelling reason. Word is comfortable, and being able to post to one's blog here would be very natural for most writers who live in Word already.
I might set this up for my wife as she's already comfortable with Word and Office. We'll get the picture/media thing worked out and I'll have Mo give it a try.
