Since we have no evidence as to 'what is commonly used' (and by whom)
I think that would be difficult.

Oh dear.

1.	To publish test suites of ODF for applications of ODF to check their
conformance with the Standard and to confirm their interoperability;
2.	To provide feedback, where necessary, to the ODF TC on ways in which the
standard could improve interoperability;
3.	To produce a set of implementation guidelines;
4.	To define interoperability with related standards by the creation of
profiles or technical reports;
5.	To coordinate, in conjunction with the ODF Adoption TC,  OASIS InterOp
demos related to ODF;

I interpreted item for in context.

I.e. guidelines on implementing tests. Not implementing ODF.

I wonder how many other misinterpretations there are
by myself and other people.

AFAIK you are the first person to mention ODF implementation
guidelines on this list.
