Subject: Re: [office] Namespace 'of' for formula expressions

Hi David,

Correct, so having that described as "namespace alias is required to be
'of'" isn't the right wording.

Which was the reasoning behind my thoughts. To encourage the use of 'of'
the right wording probably would be, applications _should_ write the
namespace alias 'of'.
