Are we testing how applications interpret ODF? That would be Ok too, but I would abstain from rendering issues as I really don't see that as a part of standard. > 3. Are we testing how to use ODF to interact with other formats (OOXML, > CDR, etc.) Maybe as a side issue - I do not think that ODF should change itself just to conform to some other formats. It would be great if there are some common points that ease interaction with other formats, but I don't think ODF should change just because that would make it more compatible with some other format. I'm not sure formats, esp. open formats, should ever abide to that, even if the other party is another open format. And, as my point about rendering issues, interaction with other formats should be left to developers to implement filters for. But, I think that somehow loops back to point one, an issue of interoperability?
