Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-1286) Public Comment:Requirement [Remove form:control-implementation and form:properties]

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-1286?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=19670#action_19670 ] 

Bart Hanssens commented on OFFICE-1286:

Thanks Andreas. I've updated the OIC Advisory (and indeed, issues with advisories should be entered in the OIC TC rather than the ODF TC's Jira ;-)

For the record: this issue here - ODF TC Jira - is of course not resolved (yet), and IMHO my original comment from March 2009 still stands.

For ODF Next, one should 

a) analyze the existing ODF implementations supporting form controls to see when this attribute is used and why (is it because there are perhaps too few form controls available in ODF, requiring a form:control-implementation in order to provide additional controls ? implementation legacy ?)

b) to a lesser extent, also take a look at the form:properties and child elements  (perhaps form:properties can be kept, but if and only if implementations are not allowed to use form:properties if a property can be expressed in an implementation-independent way using standard ODF elements and attributes - and perhaps  form:property-name should be a namespacedToken instead of string)

For ODF 1.2, perhaps it can be mentioned in the spec that an implementation supporting a particular form:* control must provide a fallback mechanism when it consumes a document containing controls that either do not have a form:control-implementation attribute or have an unsupported / unrecognized attribute value.
