I'm curious what steer Intel gave these people. Seemingly to test
by assessing the man machine interface?

This is my point of interest. Do the various implementations lay down on disk
XML that is 'compliant' (clearer definition needed) with ODF, for each feature.

As each implementation evolves over time the one constant should be the
XML laid down on disk, and given some piece of XML valid to the ODF schema
will it be presented appropriately to a user.

Has any work been done in this area please?
