I think it is important that users know whether an application that 
claims to be ODF 1.2 compliant is able to store documents without 
extensions, or only documents that contain such extensions. So, if we 
would give up the requirement that all ODF producers are able to produce 
strict conforming documents, we at least would need an additional 
conformance class for producers, so that one can differ between a 
producer that is able to create strictly conforming documents, and one 
that isn't. This may be an option, but it doesn't make it easier to 
understand what the various conformance levels actually mean.

What do you think?

Best regards
