Subject: Re: [office] Contributing features


Do you have something written up, either use cases or a proposal document?

You might start by posting the material to either the mailing list or the 
document repository and start a discussion that way.

Or, if you prefer, put the details on the Wiki and then send a note to the 
mailing list linking to the Wiki page.

I'm sure you will get some preliminary feedback.

IMHO, since this type of table header is unfamiliar to most Western users, 
it would be good to start with some examples and use cases, or even a 
short requirements documents, that describe at a high level the 
capabilities that are desired.  We'll also need to talk to the 
Accessibility Subcommittee at some point, since navigation of tables for 
the blind will need to be considered.
