Subject: Re: [oiic-formation-discuss] Caution and Disclaimer on Interoperability

2008/6/14 jose lorenzo <hozelda@yahoo.com>:

> But then what are we doing worrying about interoperability? If you replace all ODF structure designed for various purposes with your own secret sauce, then you may be following ODF technically (ie, the ODF definition of "strictly conforming" might be met), but interoperability was thrown out the window. The document produced interoperates only at a very superficial level, *gratuitously* keeping hidden from all other applications the useful content and structure users can experience only with that one application. [This is called "lock-in".]

And we can't do anything about that procedurally.
We just hope that users will realise that such crap is not interoperable
and realise the benefits of interop.

We can't clamp down on such stuff Jose, honest.
