If there are specific questions that the TC wants the SC to research and 
provide recommendations on, we can add that to the Scope statement.  For 

To propose a name for the next ODF revision, whether 1.3 or 2.0;
To recommend whether the next version should be backwards compatible, or 
whether it may introduce incompatible changes;

But if the TC believes that it knows the answer to that last question, 
then we can state that as constraints in the SC's scope:

To ensure that the work recommended by the TC will not harm backwards 
compatibility, and in particular will avoid changes that do X, Y and Z.
