 From what I read, Marbux's hammering on CDRF doesn't have anything to 
do with inter-protocol interop (i.e. between ODF, OOXML, XHTML, 
etcetera) but with interop inside the ODF universe (i.e. a way to make 
sure that if the TC creates interop profiles, that those profiles 
actually provide interop). See

Simon pointed out to me that what CDRF defines as profiles is something 
different than a subset profile that could be used as an interop 
specification, but the idea itself has merit I think, even when it's got 
nothing to do with CDRF.

So, if you filter out the CDRF stuff from the list, how much call is 
there for interop-between-different-standards?
