Subject: Re: [office-formula] Name of format, namespace, standard prefix

On the namespace, are we suggesting that table:formula becomes of:formula?  I hope not.  We're specifically talking about a namespace prefix in the attribute value, i.e., the formula string, right?

We probably also want to change 8.1.3 to say, "Every formula must begin with a namespace prefix..." rather than the current "should".
