Oh no --- not again!!!
I'm not going to this nightmare again. You present your personal opinion as a TC opinion here.
The whole list conversation ended with: There is no single interpretation --- otherwise we wouldn't have had to correct this in ODF1.2.
So we don't even agree that the ODF1.0/1.1 specification allows several interpretations of the continuation of paragraph numberings?

When I recall our last TC's call correct and when I look at the minutes,
further actions are discussed, but due to the end of our TC's call, we
did not decide on any further action.

From my point of view the purpose of an errata for a released ODF
specification is not to describe problems of this ODF specification - it
purpose is to correct this ODF specification.
Thus, I personally do not think that an errata should contain such an

I assume that you mean by <"continue" behavior of ODF 1.0/1.1 paragraph
numbering> the list continuation specified by attribute
text:continue-numbering. Is this correct?
As already mentioned in
http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/office/200903/msg00090.html I know
the following two interpretations of text:continue-numbering:
- A wrong one, implemented in OpenOffice.org 2.x - from my point of view
not a valid interpretation, because this is obviously an error of
- The correct one, when carefully reading the ODF 1.0/1.1 specification.
Which "two interpretations" do you have in mind?
