Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-2257) NEEDS-DISCUSSION:Package 7.2.2 Conforming OpenDocument Extended Package Not Useful

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-2257?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=18753#action_18753 ] 

Dennis Hamilton commented on OFFICE-2257:

I don't know that we did deal with extended conforming packages, only extended conforming documents.  

There is a big difference in having extended packages, because if you make an extended conforming docuemnt, and it is allowed to use an extended conforming package, it is not clear that a conforming OpenDocument consumer can even open and inspect the contents of the package, so it is no longer just a matter of eliminating unsupported foreign elements.

So why call such a thing a conforming OpenDocument anything?  I think we have gone too far afield from the provisions for foreign elements, attributes, and values to things that no one can provide any graceful degredation for, even if they wanted to.

>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Conformance, Packaging
>    Affects Versions: ODF 1.2 Part 3 CD 1
>         Environment: This issue applies to ODF 1.2 Part 3 CD01 (file OpenDocument-v1.2-part3-cd01.odt plus the PDF and HTML formats).
>            Reporter: Dennis Hamilton

>             Fix For: ODF 1.2 Part 3 CD 2
> 1. In Part 3 section 7.2.2, the only difference made between a Conforming OpenDocument Package and Conforming OpenDocument Extended Package is when the optional mimetype file and the optional <manifest:file-entry> element with manifest:full-path="/" are both present.  For a Conforming OpenDocument Package, the manifest:media-type attribute value must match the mimetype file content.  For a Conforming OpenDocument Extended Package, agreement is not required.
> 2. I fear that I may have had something to do with this being in here.  Either way, I find that this is insufficient cause to define two conformance targets hinged on such a minor difference.
> 3. The consequence of this two-level approach is a great deal of effort having to say when a provision (or related conformance target) applies to Conforming OpenDocument Documents and when Conforming OpenDocument Extended Documents are also included or excluded.  
> 4. Supplementai Issue OFFICE-2259 proposes one way a specialized conformance target requiring presence and agreement between the two MIME Type occurrences.
