I appreciate Regina's suggestion of a compromise but it still widens what is considered a conforming OpenDocument Document. I have no issue with widening the definition of a conforming OpenDocument Extended Document but I still think that interoperability with respect to conforming OpenDocument Document should not so completely depend on the goodwill of the implementers.

I do not see, that it widens the current definition of "conforming".

In my understanding the current conformance clause 2.2.1 D.3) does not say, that the namespace shall be "urn:oasis:names:tc:opendocument:xmlns:of:1.2". But it says, _if_ the used namespace is "urn:oasis:names:tc:opendocument:xmlns:of:1.2", then syntax and semantic shall conform to Part 4.

I read this as that the conformance clause provides only two options.

Moreover, since the document cannot be interpreted reasonably without the consumer being able to understand these attribute values the third option cannot be acceptable.

As I mentioned in the meetings, using a differnet name-space is akin to using foreign elements. So it should at most be allowed in conforming Extended OpenDocument Documents.
