    I think this update only removes a certain part of MS Word 2007 that was ordered by a judge recently, after a company filed a lawsuite against Microsoft. I doubt it enhances stability and performance.

    Furthermore, this update is only binding for US residents.

    So, it is not an update but a downdate.

    Overview
    This is an update to Microsoft Office Word 2007. Generally, customers who purchase or license Word 2007 from Microsoft after January 10, 2010 for use in the United States and its territories must use updated software that does not include a particular custom XML tagging implementation.

    You must install this update if you are instructed by Microsoft in a separate communication.
