The TC is required to provide the CDs in editable source, PDF and X/HTML. 
The format of the editable source is a factual question.  If it was indeed 
authored in draft ODF 1.2 as written by OOo 3.2.x, then we are obliged to 
deliver the document in that format.  If it was written in Word DOC format 
or WordPerfect format, then we would deliver it in that.  There is no 
requirement that the editable format be a standard.

In JTC1 specifications are balloted and published in a single format only, 
typically PDF.
