Sorry for the delayed response.

Is this a principle you would suggest being applied to all the "foreign" 
elements/attributes in ODF 1.2?

The reason I ask is that if you review the comments I have made on the 
latest draft for the attributes, you will find that we depart from 
standards where we use their attributes more than now and again.

My personal preference is for use/citation without modification but we 
are hardly writing on a clean slate with ODF 1.2 and so there may be 
modifications that we simply acknowledge as going to persist over time 
or that we plan to change in some future release.

Hope you are having a great day!
