Why would an application (you don't constrain to a type of application
such as an office type of application of ODF) do this?

What attributes/elements? All in any foreign namespace?
For what purpose?

Would you put this requirement on all ODF applications?

This does not seem sensible as a general constraint.

I.e. I'd propose that no application is required to retain
foreign attributes or elements when saving back to file.
