Subject: Preservation question


I have searched for work in OOXML that addresses the question of 
preservation of metadata.

I think what comes closest is the following section:

> 9.1.9 Unknown Relationships
> All relationships not defined within this Standard are considered 
> unknown relationships. Unknown relationships are valid within an 
> Office Open XML document provided that they conform to relationship 
> markup guidelines as defined by the OPC specification. Specifically:
> Conforming consumers shall not fail to load a document containing 
> unknown relationships.
> Conforming producers are encouraged to roundtrip and preserve unknown 
> relationships and their target parts.
I don't take "encouraged" to be the equivalent of "shall." ;-)

Hope this is helpful.
