Subject: Higher level ODF model


Just a comment on the notion of a higher level view of ODF as an infoset.

No objection so far as that goes because it is a *defined* infoset.

I'm less confident about attempting a general infoset for all, even
just, office documents.

That's been tried before, it's called HyTime. ISO/IEC 10744:1992

Actually it was done twice, I have a copy of the first edition, which
for various reasons was overtaken by a second edition, which was
radically different. I know the authors in both cases (different
authors) so venture no opinion on their relative merits.

Suffice it to say it's not a place anyone goes willingly.

Hope everyone is a the start of a great week!
