Subject: 1.3 Namespace: compatible extensions?


Under 1.3 Namespace we say:

> Implementations may also accept formula syntaxes other than 
> OpenFormula, and they may accept various compatible extensions to the 
> default OpenFormula syntax.
How would we judge a compatible extension?

Or was it meant to say:

"...they may accept extensions to the default OpenFormula syntax." ?

That would parallel the first part of the sentence.

I assume like OpenDocument, where OpenFormula provides a function that 
should be used in preference to an extension. That is to say that 
extensions are for going beyond OpenFormula and not replacing it.

Hope everyone is having a great day!
