>             Project: OASIS Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) TC
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: OpenFormula
>    Affects Versions: ODF 1.2 CD 05
>            Reporter: Eric Patterson
>            Priority: Critical
>             Fix For: ODF 1.2
>  Given that a formula namespace the Named Expression identifier ($$) are both optional, how do we disambiguate a string like "OF:[.A5]"?  In this case "OF" could be a named range/expression or a formula namespace.
> This is especially difficult for formulas being used for Style:Condition because they lack an equals sign.
> This was not resolved.  Style:Condition and Table:condition state that they shall not include an equals sign and the use of a namespace is only a "should" not a "shall".  Expressions starting with a named expression and a range operator (":") cannot be differentiated from a namespace and a colon.
