3) What is expected to happen in LibreOffice Writer via the Terminal:
cd ~/Desktop && wget https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/openoffice.org/+bug/211345/+attachment/253514/+files/Vorlage%20Brief.ott && unoconv --listener && unoconv -f rtf Vorlage\ Brief.ott && lowriter -nologo Vorlage\ Brief.ott Vorlage\ Brief.rtf
the text fields remain.
4) What happens instead is they disappear.
Is RTF format able to handle such kind of text fields (placeholders)?
Abiword (2.5.8 under Ubuntu) save the name of the placeholder between < and >.
LO should do the same if placeholders are not supported by RTF, instead of removing it.

Tested with LO 3.5.1. Now LO seems to do the same as Abiword, it save the name of the placeholder.
@Christopher : Please could you verify on your side ?
If it is correct, I suggest to close this bug report as fixed.
