Subject: Re: [office] Default Values Proposal

Hi Rob, all,

I would like to discuss this proposal in the next call. We had already 
agreed that we want to move default value definitions from the schema 
into the specification, so what's needed is only a short review of the 
language that I have chosen. If the language is okay, we may accept the 
proposal in the next-but-one call, and I may apply the stylesheet to the 
next draft that gets available, so that the default values get part of it.
