 Of course we need to try to make lds to have correct value. I should say that
I tried importing word6 russian document and it imported fine, so lids are
incorrect only for CJK.

 As for my suggestion - this seems a reasonable fallback solution if we fail
to understand how to make lids having the correct value. At least that will
allow user to import a document. And of course additional "format types" will
be hidden if AW is running under on-CJK locale.
