Ok, fair argument.  I was actually not looking for getting my proposal
integrated for 1.2, as I was fully aware that we had already closed
doors on new features for 1.2 back in November.  What I was looking for
was to have it go through a review process and get TC's blessing, so
that it could make it into the next ODF revision after 1.2.

Yes, this would be possible.  Thanks for getting me up to speed on this.

Ok.  I'll see if I can get necessary permission to become a JIRA editor,
then I'll add my proposal there with ODF-Next as the target.

Thanks again!
