File Name Extensions and MIME types
The TC continued its discussions regarding MIME types and extensions. 
The TC identified the following issues:
- The registration authority is IANA and not the TC. The Open Office 
specification therefor can only contain a list of MIME types that are 
registered at the time the specification is published.
- How do we avoid that different vendors register multiple open office 
related MIME types/extensions for the same purpose?
- How can we ensure that readers of the specification understand that 
they can register their own MIME types?
- How can we ensure that the Open Office TC notices if new open office 
related MIME types get registered.

While there seems to be no solution that addresses all these issues, the 
TC agreed to
- add a link to the registration procedure described RFC2048 to the 
- move the list of MIME types into an non normative appendix;
- state in the specification that this list of MIME types only a 
snapshot of what is registered at the time the specification is 
published (or contains the MIME types the TC intends to register 
itself), but that the full list is available following the instructions 
described in RFC2048 only.

The TC further agreed to add the non-basic MIME types/extensions 
described in 
http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/office/200408/msg00004.html to the 
list of MIME types it intents to register.

The TC unanimously agreed to add the fo:margin property to the 
specification as proposed in 

Order of style elements
As proposed in 
http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/office/200408/msg00011.html, the TC 
unanimously agreed that the various style elements may occur in any 
order within the <office:styles> and <office:automatic-styles> elements.
