Subject: Re: [office] Errata: Substantive Schema Change in 15.27.22?

I am sure this has been talked through before, and I apologize for bringing it up again except I am expected to deal with agenda item 4b, which is an attestation that there are no substantive changes.

That's an interesting question. The description of the attribute says 
"style:wrap-dynamic-threshold" while the schema says 
"style:wrap-dynamic-treshold". That's an obvious mismatch. Only one of 
the two spellings can be "correct" in the sense that this is the name 
that should be used in ODF documents.

The question is what implementors have assumed to be correct and what 
they therefore have implemented. Since there is an obvious spelling 
error in the schema, my assumption would be that they have used 
"style:wrap-dynamic-threshold" an in fact have assumed that the schema 
is wrong here. Under this assumption, correcting the spelling in the 
schema would be non-substantive.

We may update them.
