Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-3693) Public Comment: (Ed)3.10.2 <config:config-item-set> [ODF 1.2 Part 1, Public ReviewDraft 03 ofJan 19th 2011]

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-3693?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=25506#action_25506 ] 

Robert Weir  commented on OFFICE-3693:

Two things:

1) What does the standard allow?


2) What breaks interoperability?

To me it is clear that config settings, used in a conforming way, could break interoperability.  For example, you could have a config settings that says, "In the absence of a default font definition, use Zapf Dingbats 4 pt, green text on a purple background."

The interesting thing, however, about that case, is that a conforming implementation may have this behavior even without config settings.  It could just be the application's hard-coded default setting.  So config settings don't enable new ways of breaking interoperability.  They merely give another way for an implementation to control the use of any conforming, non-interoperable behavior they already support.

Of course, I'd love to have fewer non-interoperable behaviors.  But the way we address that in the spec is by adding additional requirements on the underlying behaviors, e.g., a requirement on default text styles.  You don't get far by trying to restrict where the document these settings are stored.
