Description of issue

It is stated that:

    The version number is in the format revision.version. If the file has a version known to an XML processor, it may validate the document. Otherwise, it is optional to validate the document, but the document must be well formed. 


    * No "XML Processor" has an understanding of such attributes. Perhaps what is meant here is "ODF processor"?
    * There is a false opposition between the two given behaviours here since one is governed by the word "may" and the other is described as optional. So as stated, both behaviours are in fact optional; furthermore there is an implication that a document with an unrecognized version attribute may not be well-formed. This is confusing.
    * DTD-governed MathML content within ODF documents may have different content depending on how the DTD is processed, since the DTD contains attribute defaulting; so the different behaviours given here may result in different documents. The behaviour in such circumstances should be clarified (even if to state it is application-dependent).
