Discussion of Work Package 6.2 Embedded Objects
The TC continued the discussion about fallback or replacement images for 
embedded objects. The TC discussed to enhance the specification as 
follows. A list of replacement images will be added to both kind of 
embedded objects, the ones that have an XML representation 
(<office:object>) and the ones that have only a binary representation 
(<office:foreign-object>). It is recommended to order the replacement 
images by their quality, but it is up to the application to choose the 
representation that best fits its purpose, its requirements and is best 
supported by the system it is running on. This means that there is 
explicitly no rule that an application has to choose the first 
replacement image if it does not support the object itself, the second 
if it does neither support the object nor the first replacement and so on.
It is recommended to supply PNG for bitmap replacement images and SVG 
for vector based replacement images.
Phil Boutros will create a proposal for this enhancement.

Discussion of Work Package 6.3 Other Graphical Elements
The TC unanimously agreed to enhance the specification for wrapping 
around text-boxes, images, etc. A "style:wrap-dynamic-threshold" that 
takes a length will be added. This attribute is evaluated  if the 
"style:wrap" attribute has a value of "dynamic" and will specify the 
minimum distance between the page or column border and the object for 
which wrapping will be enabled. In addition to this, a value "biggest" 
will be added for "style:wrap" attribute that specifies that the text 
wraps around the object border where the difference to the left or right 
page or column border is largest.

A discussion of gradients was started based on an earlier 
comment/proposal posted by David Faure. Discussion was moved to the next 
meeting to allow people to get more familiar with David's proposal.

New Action Items
Phil Boutros: Create proposal for replacement images for embedded objects.
