I mentioned it on the list a while back, thought it has not received much discussion.

The general topic was interop with other standards.  This does not need to be limited to conversion, but could include containment, interleaving, or other relations.  These could be defined in a profile specification.

On the conversion side, you could specify a canonical mapping of elements from one markup to another.  Implementors of the specification would achieve predictable and repeatable conversions.

I get a lot of requests asking how to use standard X with ODF.  For cases where there are a number of people interested in the income, we could work with them to define a profile.
