Not really. Remember how Officeshots works. The actual rendering is not 
done by the Officeshots server but by the various factory clients that 
volunteers provide. By using the ODF anonymiser you only need to trust 
the central server, not the rendering clients.

Yes, just install iTools from http://www.hforge.org/itools and use the 
included iodf-greek.py script. See also the explanation of the 
anonymiser on this page:
