There is no difference between the first announcement and the second announcement.
"Download Google Docs in Office 2003-07 format" means exporting files from Google Docs to your computer in the old formats. That's what they say will not be supported any more in the first statement, and the new statement says exactly the same thing.
The only difference is that now, they tell you how you can open the new formats on your computer if you are still with an old version of Office, and they make clear that importing old formats is still possible, contrary to the FUD.

I wish some of them could act as Google did in the US spectrum auction; i.e. pledging a whole bunch of money on condition that all participants have to accept interoperability no matter what.
It may be just my opinion, but I think government regulation about minimum interoperability is coming no matter what. There are just not enough players to guarantee a fair competition. If so, the sooner governements force interoperability, the better.
