Subject: Question about file names in the package

I noted that the specification doesn't specify the filenames to be used
within a package for the various subtypes (document-content, document-styles, document-meta etc.)

OO uses content.xml, styles.xml, meta.xml etc.

But does the fact that this isn't in the specification mean that applications reading
such files should simply read the manifest file, and from there parse any file whose
media-type is text/xml? I'm afraid this (very flexible) system would make the parsing
difficult (if the names aren't fixed, we'd have to first open each file and find out
which one contains which subtype, in order to parse e.g. styles before content).

What do you think about specifying explicitly that document-content should be 
saved as content.xml, document-styles should be saved as styles.xml, etc.?
