What you see in JIRA is what there is.  So this proposal has not advanced.

We receive many requests, but in the end things move forward based on the priorities and efforts of those on our technical committee doing the work.  In this sense it is similar to an open source project.   For something to move forward from an idea to something we can vote on we need actual specification language.  For something like this it would need detail such as:

1) The RNG schema additions that would need to be added

2) A textual description of what the XML means

3) A statement of what the mandatory and optional requirements are for an ODF application processing this new XML

4) In this case probably a labeled diagram illustrating what a boxplot is

You can see some examples of past proposals here:


I'll note that LO has a couple members who are also members of the ODF TC.  So they are the goods ones to talk to if you need help getting a proposal introduced.
