Subject: RE: [office] One strictly conforming document?

Since the current ODF 1.0/IS 26300/ODF 1.1 specifications only define
(normative) conformance that allows for foreign elements (among others), and
you are successfully requiring strict conformance in your procurement
policies, it seems to me that you are not disturbed, as a practical matter,
in obtaining strictly-conformant products.  

I would think that having strict conformance normatively-defined in the ODF
specification, while preserving the current overall definition, would
support your case by a specification-defined quality.  If you don't want the
other kind around, so be it, but I don't think having the TC do that work
for you will solve your problem.

My preference would still be very much for the single strict
conformance class for documents, with no foreign elements except in
the agreed upon locations.  I will shift extremely reluctantly (wild
horses ...) towards a mish-mash of conformance permutations.
