Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-3650) Public Comment:PRD02 Pt 1, dimensions of variability

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-3650?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=23937#action_23937 ] 

Michael Brauer commented on OFFICE-3650:

I understand your concerns, but vice versa, we must also be careful that we do not change the specification because of a singe opinion or even a single comment. So, if we think the specification is clear, then we should keep it as is.

But let's have a look at the mote in question one more time:

Note: See [Variability] for variability in specifications

First, it is a note. And a note provides only non-normative information. So, whatever we say in a note, may help to understand the specification, but it does not define anything. Second, the not talks about "specifications". It does not talk about the ODF specification. So, this is a general statement already. So, I think when reading the note carefully, it gets clear that it is not more than a link to some background information.
