Discussion of Work Package 1.2 First Level Elements
- After short discussion the TC unanimously agreed to not rename the 
"automatic-styles" element.
- The TC discussed whether the "body" element
a) should contain elements for paragraphs, tables, etc. directly as it 
is the case for the OpenOffice.org XML file format, or
b) should contain elements like "spreadsheet", "text" etc. that further 
classify the kind of document and can only contain the sub elements, 
that are really applicable to that kind of document.
While solution a) seems to be more open to future office application 
types, solutions b) has the advantages that validation against the 
schema is more meaningful (i.e. the schema itself rather than the 
specification text defines which elements can be contained in for 
instance a spreadsheet or a text document only) and that the schema 
itself gives much more support in manually creating documents of a 
certain kind. The advantages of b) were considered to be very strong, so 
the TC unanimously agreed to change the schema to use solution b).
- The TC further discussed whether multiple "body" elements should be 
allowed in a singe document. The TC agreed that for now only one "body" 
element should be allowed, but that the TC may reconsider this in the 
2nd phase of the TC. Michael Brauer will create and maintain a list of 
items on the TC's web page that could be reconsidered later.

New Action Items
- Michael Brauer: Create a list of items on the TC's web page that could 
be reconsidered later.
