A default stated in the specification would work as well. 

The question really is:  If someone uses a different formula language (not 
OpenFormula) what does this mean for conformance:

a) Is it non-conformant?


b) Is it conformant to the extended conformance class only?

I think most implementations are converging on OpenFormula in the ODF 1.2 
time frame, though not all vendors are close to this in their ODF 1.1 

In any case, we could propose a) as a solution and then ask if any members 
have strong objections to that approach.
