I think this is a reasonable compromise. Something like "OpenFormula
formula attribute values must use the of: namespace prefix, which must
reference the OpenFormula namespace URI. Non-OpenFormula formulas may
not use the of: prefix." Of course it would only simplify
implementations if they only wanted to handle OpenFormula, but as I
said it's a compromise.
