When will the formal spec be ready? I think it is obvious that the TC 
can only consider to use/include CSL in ODF if there is a formal spec in 
the style of the ODF specification itself that the TC can review. Do you 
think this formal spec is something that you can prepare in the ODF 1.2 
timeline, or more within the timeline of a later version.

Sure. So an option we have is to switch to CSL when it has been 
standardized, and to stay with current solution until when, maybe adding 
the one or two mostly wanted features to it.

Do you have any idea where you would like to standardize CSL?
