Subject: RE: [office] Not an JIRA issue, yet....

It occurs to me that the term varies depending on where it is used.  Stepping back a little farther, I notice this:

In Part 2, Open Formula, we speak of Host-Dependent Parameters (the term used elsewhere is Hosting and we might want to adopt that in the section of Part 2 and speak of them as Hosting-Dependent Parameters).

In Part 1, Schema, we are specifying the satisfaction of those parameters in the table:formula hosting of OpenFormula (not necessarily the same as such hostings elsewhere in Part 1).  So we might be better off calling them the OpenFormula Hosting Profile for each instance.  (I don't know that the same profile applies everywhere OpenFormula is usable for an attribute in Part 1, although we could cross-reference to a common one.)  

It is open formula that has the dependencies in order to be integrated into table:formula.  It is Part 1 that establishes how those dependencies are satisfied in that context.  

It is in a Part 1 OpenFormula Hosting Profile where it would be stated that the establishment of a particular parameter (or some discretionary aspect of it) is implementation-defined, implementation-dependent or even excluded/unsupported.  There would also be (and are) more affirmative statements: identification of a document setting that provides the parameter or providing a fixed value that shall be used, for example.

Have I made things worse or is this more clear?

If used consistently yes. Patrick?

Any reviewer will read text similarly whether well thought out or rushed Dennis,
so I guess it should all be right?
