MS Office has lot of automation capabilities and there are thousands of tools written as plug-ins to MS Office. To have these deployed on backend, as of today, requires a lot of VM management and deployment overheads. It should be a business driver for MS Office team to get all or "most" part of those capabilities, getting to work in a windows container. Its now years of waiting, first for windows containers and now waiting to get MS Office start to work on it. Hopefully, some sense will preval!!
