In principle I would be fine with this.

The wording needs some work as this might have one problem for non-complete 
implementations (consumers).
Imagine a property (drop caps for instance) that is not supported by an 
implementation, per my reading it would fail the above clause because it 
misses a feature. So its unwanted collateral damage.

But I have no problem with saying the namespaced odf-extensions should not be 
meant to change the rendering of the object in strict docs.
