General Discussion

Duane will give an overview of XMP metadata technology next week or the 
week after that.

On conformance, Florian outlined a possible model as a starting point 
for discussuin. Conformance would therein be gauged by a list, that 
expresses, for every feature of OpenDocuemnt, whether an application is 
implementing it on a "content only", "structural" or "style" level, 
where each level implies the previous. Problems that were seen during 
the discussion were, that such a list would be very lengthy and of 
limited use to the casual user selecting an application. Furthermore, it 
cannot be said, how exactly each feature is to be rendered in every 
situation, so visual or "style" conformance would be hard to judge.
Lasr suggested, that XSL-FO might be used to describe the rendering of 
each feature, the usefullness and maintainability of such an effort 
however remains questionable.
A general issue that was derived from the discussion, is the question on 
how layout and visual presentaion are relevant for the work of the TC 
(and whether they are at all).
