Subject: Features for ODF 1.3/Next


Just a couple of questions to start the discussion of new features for 
ODF 1.3/Next.

1) To what extent would having a page model from XSL-FO enhance 
interoperability? (This implies generally following XSL-FO as written, 
not in compatible mode.)

I am thinking that using the XSL-FO page model would allow us to 
describe the placement of objects in the terminology of XSL-FO.

Not that I care how an implementation accomplishes that placement, so 
long as it serializes the result to XML that conforms to the ODF spec.

Thinking this would give us greater specificity without having to 
re-invent a vocabulary in which to specify the placement of content on a 

2) To what extent would implementations be impacted if the draw 
provisions of ODF 1.2 were re-written to use SVG 1.1?

Just asking at this point, I need to review all the draw provisions and 
see what that would take.

Would we want to deprecate current provisions with the promise to 
terminate support in a following version?

Documents written using the older standard would still be valid, but 
might not be supported by all software.

Hope everyone is at the start of a great week!
