Another transformer conflicts with OpenOffice

I have developed a transform action, which will 'transform' any document into an XML document containing technical metadata (see the fitsinalfresco project on AlfrescoForge). This works fine (no errors in the log). But I found that it is now preventing OpenOffice from being used to transform documents for preview in Flash.

I'm guessing that my transformer is taking precedence over OpenOffice (it will transform anything). It will generate an XML file, but this is not what the Flash player is expecting, so the timer just spins indefinitely.

Is there a way to specify the order of precedence for transform actions? I only want my action to be run when explicitly instructed, and not to be the default transform. It is packaged as an AMP. Is there anything I can do to stop it being run instead of the OpenOffice transform?
