Subject: Feature under evaluation at Redflag 2000

Dear TC members,

our team at Redflag 2000 is currently evaluating a feature related to 
tables in word processors, we call 'Floating Table Positioning'. So far, 
tables cannot be absolutely positioned in ODF text documents, except 
they are embedded in a "draw:frame" element, please refer section 9.4.2 
in ODF 1.2, Part 1, CD03[1]. Other document standards, namely OOXML 
(section 17.4.60 tblPr, Part 1, ISO 29500, Page 484) and UOF support 
absolute positioning of tables in text documents, quite similar to 
"draw:frame" in ODF, so we would like to submit a proposal that adds 
this feature in order to increase interoperability.

Consequently, I would like to raise two questions:

1) Is any TC member already working on a similar feature?

2) Considering such feature seems to be quite obvious, as well it is 
quite easy to add, hence I would like to know if there is a telling 
argument, why it hasn't made it into ODF yet?

Best regards,
