Subject: Re: [office]Welcome to join UOML TC that deals with document operationlanguage
Alex, I must confess that the UOML TC is of interest, particularly if it results in a generalized mapping solution between different XML formats. However, I do note that the schedule for the TC, a working draft by 31 March 2007, appears to simply be an endorsement of a current draft on which your company and others assert IPR. While I am very interested in mapping solutions, I am definitely not interested in standardizing a particular group's IP in order to help create a market for it. You might want to note that such a plan was tried with DRM for multi-media in ISO (the MPEG standard) and the upshot was that no vendors would agreed to use it. Should the UOML group form another TC, one not under RAND, please let me know. Hope you are having a great day!

It is the best way for document interoperation(e.g. interoperation between Open Office and MS Office) by providing an easy, effective and unified way to generate, read, write, display, print, edit document. I beleive it is useful to you, and hope you can join this TC to make the standard meeting your requirements. >The first meeting of UOML TC will be held on Feb. 6th.
