Hi, Dennis,

The OIC TC Charter in that regard provides in its scope of work section:

"6. To provide feedback, where necessary, to the OASIS Open Document
Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) TC on changes to ODF
that might improve interoperability[.]"


Clearly and unambiguously specifying the conformity requirements that
are essential to achieve the interoperability is not on the ODF TC's
agenda. Perhaps some prodding on that topic by this TC's State of ODF
Interoperability Report might cause the ODF TC to add that agenda item
for ODF 1.2? "Twould be more efficient than waiting for such work to
begin at SC 34 when it receives ODF 1.2 and even more implementation
code would need rewrite to accommodate the changes.

Best regards,

Paul E. Merrell, J.D. (Marbux)
