Yes, this should probably be one of the main goals. Aside from going 
over the spec, the TC could look at all the real-world implementations 
of ODF and identify the pain-points in the spec that cause the most 
interop headaches for users and application developers.

Also yes. As I see it, there are two main sources for interop problems. 
Problems with the spec itself (addressed in the above point) and 
problems on how the spec is implemented. The TC doesn't need to test the 
applications itself, but should probably deliver the tools and 
documentation that help users and application developers implement the 
spec correctly.

I don't think so. Perhaps as a low priority item. I agree with the other 
comments that the TC workload would be too much for this TC. Perhaps it 
would be better off in a separate TC.
