I would have considered answer your questions had you not accused me
of insanity. I have spent more than four years full-time investigating
both the facts and the law in regard to ODF and OOXML and am a former
member of the ODF TC. You sir, very obviously have not even read the
ODF conformance section or the Annex I to the ISO/IEC/JTC 1
Directives. E.g., international standards must "clearly and
unambiguously specify the conformity requirements essential to achieve
the interoperability."

You might try posing some more informed, thoughtful, and polite
questions after you have read and thought about those two sections.
You got off to a very bad start with me. I am not here to educate
people who make no effort to familiarize themselves with the subject

Best regards,
