Subject: Re: [office] status of "Fieldmarks" proposal?

Ok. No problem.

Thus, can I expect that you still want to have the proposed feature in 
ODF and that you will continue your work on the proposal?

As far as I know the TC discussed in its call at 2008-07-14 such a 
general marking mechanism. But, the TC did not decide anything.
As far as I remember there are some TC members (including me) that would 
support such a general marking mechanism. I did not remember a argument 
against such a general marking mechanism.

It is your proposal. Thus, it is up to you to change the proposal.

As I already expressed I support the idea/feature behind this proposal, 
because it would fulfill the feature request which I have made - see 
I could imagine to play an active role for this proposal (or a changed 
one proposing a general marking mechanism) - e.g. being one of the 
proposers. But, I currently do not know, if your interests somehow fits 
to my interests and can be brought in line - see my made remarks and the 
following thread.

Best regards, Oliver.
