Subject: Re: [office] ODF with W3C CDF

Yue Ma, all,

The reason we are using our own namespaces for SVG, SMIL and XSL-FO are 
not validation problems, but that these specifications do not contain 
schema modules that we may include. In particular, they do not define 
global attributes, but all attributes do only exist for specific 
elements. Since we do not include these elements, and we can't do so, we 
cannot include their attributes. Actually, we used the SVG, SMIL and 
XSL-FO namespaces themselves in early versions of the specification, but 
we were asked by the SVG working group to change that.

We actually are using the XForms namespace, but we have duplicated the 
schema definitions, because the XForms schema is a W3C Schema, while we 
require Relax-NG. We in fact may evaluate whether the use of NVDL allows 
us to change that. NVDL may be also an option to reference the MathML 
schema. The current specification actually allows anything where MathML 
may appear. I think we had shortly discussed that some time ago already.

Regarding the relation of NDL to NDVL: To the best of my knowledge, NVDL 
is the result of standardizing NRL at SC34.

I will add an "Evaluation of NVDL" to the 1.2 action item list on the wiki.
