Hi Rob,

I would presume some level of endorsement by multiple implementers
is already implied when new features get voted in to ODF. I'm
unconvinced we should add more ceremony at this point, possibly
leading to an even slower evolvement of ODF?

There is a certain circularity in this argument. If a majority of
the TC deems an addition or change to ODF useful, we should get it

Best regards,
