Do you think 1.2 will be done then?

A few what? Days? Weeks? Months? What is the typical TC gestation period?
May 05 to Feb 07 from 1.0 to 1.1?
I can't see 1.2 being done in 3 months more unless you know something
I don't Sam?

According to Wikipedia:

Ditto. Which is why I'm backing 1.1 as 'out there', and hoping
2.2 will only improve things.

In any case the 1.2 spec (or something very, very close to it) will be available to the TC when it kicks off; even better if it's not formalised as there may be some opportunity to have input before it's set in stone (yet another reason to go for the most recent release - so the ODF TC and ODF IIC TC are 'in sync' and considering similar issues). Furthermore, by the time the TC produces useful output, 1.2 should be well on the road to international standard status (and in the very least have been ratified by OASIS).

Ideally all versions would be catered for and idenfitied in the TC output where possible (eg tests should include information on which version(s) they apply to). This may not be practical for all deliverables so perhaps a little bit of flexibility is called for.
