Subject: Re: [office] auto-play presentation file format like PPS

I think it can be more meaningful if we expand the possibilities. We
could call it a preferred view of the document or some such.

For spreadsheets and word proc docs, it may only make sense to have
editable and read-only preferred views. For presentations, you could
have editable and read-only preferred views in addition to the
autoplay preferred view.

Though I've also been rattling my brain about what a concept like "autoplay" might mean in terms of a word processor document or spreadsheet.  I guess if you had something like an Xform embedded in one of these document types there is useful case for specifying it open in edit mode or 'play' mode.  There are other scenarios with spreadsheets which are traditionally controlled using protected ranges which might also lend themselves to such a metaphor.  Apart from such speculations, and mindful of time, it may be safest to specify for the moment that the flag may be ignored in document types other than presentations.
