Ok - I am glad to hear it. My concerns about the usage of the word
"Core" is that it automatically raises the question: "What is not in
the core?". If the anwser to this question is simply "Extensions", I
don't see a particular problem with this.

Yes, I was not trying to say that the conformance-classes in IS29500
are the same (or designed) as the ones proposed in ODF 1.2. I was
trying to make the point that they bring the same intrinsic problem to
the table: "how will applications deal with them?" and "Will end users
have a predictable way of interpreting the conformance claims?"
