I searched for this request but could not find it which surprised me so if this 
case exists, please link it in.

This request is to have the ability to open and save documents to the Word 2007 
docx format.

I also searched and could not find an issue about docx, other than yours.  This
surprises me, too.  The docx file format is still rather new, but it has been
out for several months and my users are already starting to get them every now
and then.

In the coming months/years, it will be critical to have the ability to not only
open but also save OO files in .docx format (unfortunately).

There is a method for converting them on the command line using a utility from
Novel called "OdfConverter"- but it is released as a Linux binary-only. Some
info here:

Excuse me but although issue 60586 is marked as fixed, OpenOffice 3.0 is able to
open (import) DOCX documents, not to save them!

Is the saving/export of Office Open XML planned?

Yes, the export is planned but we cannot give an exact schedule for this. Sorry.
