I agree. The norm should be to remove XML that is not part of ODF and which 
the app can't handle. I think this is what the current spec says.

This removal is expected by an ODF implementation that saves those properties. 
So arguing it is a bad thing that we loose it is more like arguing the 
app-developers choose the wrong extention concept.
