Nothing to be suspicious of, yes, your OOo issue initiated this. When
adding OpenFormula support to OOoCalc I overlooked that EASTERSUNDAY()
was not defined.

I would be willing to add a few (!) new function definitions to
OpenFormula for ODF 1.2 if

1. Adding the function has a clear benefit and adds functionality that
   can not be achieved otherwise.

2. There exist 1 or more implementations of the function.

3. The function is not controversially discussed.

4. The Proposal field's content is sufficient to define the function and
   can be copied almost as is to the specification document

Because of #3 I tend to withdraw my proposal and postpone to ODF-Next.


Automatic string conversions considered dangerous. They are the GOTO statements
of spreadsheets.  --Robert Weir on the OpenDocument formula subcommittee's list.
