4. Status of OpenDocument Specification

Michael will work the changes that have been aggreed upon due to 
comments during the review phase into the specification document.
Since all comments have been addressed in public and are all of minor 
impact to the work as a whole, we will not hold another public review.
The TC will thus conduct a voting on submitting the specification for 
standardization by OASIS once the updated version becomes available.
Standard submission is planned to take place no later then 2005-03-15.

5. TC Discussion

5.1 Use of Forign Namespaces

We see a similar namespace problem as has been discussed in the last 
meeting regarding namespace use with SMIL. We will thus use our own 
namespace for SMIL attributes in order to prevent polution of that namespace
Questions arose regarding use of xlink, mathml and DC namespaces, but we 
view their use as conforming.

The following 'wrapper-namespaces' will be used in the specifications:

for attributes from element namespace http://www.w3.org/2000/svg

for attributes from element namespace http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format

for attributes from element namespace http://www.w3.org/2001/SMIL20/

5.2 Parameter Delimiters
A comment regarding the inconsistent use of ',' (comma) an ';' 
(semicolon) as a seperator for parameters in function calls in 
spreadsheet formulas and other attribut values which use function-style 
We came to the conclusion, that function-style attributes are not 
formulas and that the parameter seperator should be based on the context 
in which the function is used. XPath expressions are another example 
where comma delimited function parameters are used...
