Dave, so I understand you perfectly, by "ignore" what exactly do you mean:

1) Don't allow them in conformant ODF documents?
2) Allow them in conformant ODF documents, but define a processing rule 
that says to ignore them?
3) Allow them in conformant documents, but do what HTML does, namely show 
the element content, presumably treating it as if it were content of the 
nearest ancestor node that is not in an extension namespace?
4) Something else?
