Subject: Re: [office-comment] 8.5.4 of ODF 1.0


This is not a black-and-white issue.  The editors 
have to rely on their taste, experiences, and so forth.

Your concern about inconsistencies and time delay are reasonable. 
However, when different implementors have different (and somewhat
reasonable) interpretations of the standard, the standard is likely to
fail. The editors have to consider this difficult balance and make their
own decisions.

I am an outsider and make comments without considering the difficult
balance.  You make the call.  I may continue to make comments on your
decision, but the market will make the final call and tell whether or
not your decision is correct.

As an editor, I tend to write dense specifications.  However, when I
read specifications, I do like comprehensive specifications with ample
examples.  I certainly think that OOXML is more readable than ODF and
that translation of OOXML will be easier than that of ODF.
