I will have to ask the database folks with access to the actual 
documents to check the citation.

Curious about your point on the withdrawal of 9075: 2002. That was a 
valid citation when made. Does the fact that it was later withdrawn mean 
that the original standard (and its citation) must be changed or that 
simply that we should not cite the withdrawn standard in ODF 1.2?

I am not sure how we could reproduce "...the relevant provisions..." 
since any well written standard has many dependencies in terms of 
terminology, models, etc., and so is best cited by reference and not 
quoting snippets of text which may be misleading on their own.

Thanks for catching the ambiguity in the citation.

Hope you are having a great weekend!
