The appendix is for inclusion in ODF 1.1 rather than ODF 1.0 (2nd edition). 
We therefore have enough type to correct whatever is wrong or could be done

The appendix currently is a proposal only, and addresses those questions that 
are included in the comments we got from ISO. I've mentioned i18n because the 
appendix contains more than just BiDi, but maybe i18n was the wrong term.

If the TC thinks we should add some more topics to the appendix, then we of 
course may do so.

In any case, I will correct the spelling errors that you have reported.

Thanks for the feedback.
