Subject: RE: [office] Conformance Definition Proposal and Normative MIMETYPE


Concerning what fits inside of "conformant" (whether there is a loosely-conformant or not), I think there needs to be something about normative MIMETYPE values for the office:mimetype attribute and for the MIMETYPE item of an ODF package.  At the moment these are defined in a non-normative appendix and apparently the package MIMETYPE item is optional (or is in 1.1). 

For a conformant document, I think we must be more precise and normative, especially with regard to anything that is covered in the <office:document> schema directly or in its hypothetical synthesis from package items.

In that regard, the requisite alignment of normative MIMETYPE and <office:body> content elements needs to be spelled out normatively.  This is not something that the schema can do on its own without supplemental normative language about what MIMETYPEs require what <office:body> content element.

Doesn't that make sense for (strict) compliance?

Subject: [office] Conformance Definition Proposal

Dear TC members,

I would like to discuss the below proposal in the next TC call, in 
particular whether we want to have something like a loose conformance.

Since the current conformance definitions need to be modified, it would 
be good if we could agree on one or the other alternative as basis for 
any future work on the conformance definition, if required. If one of 
the two proposals already is acceptable, then that's fine for me, too, 
of cause.

This would allow us to integrate the proposal into the specification, 
and would allow us to work on further items that depend on the 
conformance clauses. These are the schemas and the conformance clauses 
for the other parts.

Best regards
