No, if we are doing CSDs every six months, working towards a release in
two years (Michael's estimate), which accumulates up the CSDs to that
point, why couldn't that be ODF 2.0? 

Not saying it would be, entirely the TCs decision but two years of CSDs
to do a point release of corrections seems a bit slow. Particularly
since moving quickly to standardization is alleged to be a feature of
the OASIS process.

That doesn't mean we need to make any particular change but to enable
changing where there is a real benefit to the change. 

Personally I like the idea of working towards a non-backwards compatible
version. In part because new approaches are judged on their own merits
and not their compatibility with existing code.

But, as Michael has observed this morning, that is something that can
only be decided on a case by case basis. 

So, without regard to the labeling, ODF 1.3 or ODF 2.0 or some other
moniker, I will try to assemble the information for changes that I think
would be useful. 

Hope you are at the start of a great day!
