I believe I understand your point, but it really is not germane.  We do 
not need to identify the version of ODF used here.  We're only required to 
identify which version of the specification, of the ones uploaded, will 
comprise the authoritative version.  We could have just as well identified 
them by name, e.g., *.odt.  But as stated in the ballot, it is unambiguous 
which files are the ODF ones.  We agree that they are the ones with the 
odt file extension, right?
