See my suggestions for document exchange profiles based on profiles
and discussion of the maintenance of parallel branches of profiles for
business process profiles and pixel perfect profiles. Pixel perfect is
used only as a shorthand for filling in the presently-undefined
presentation layer of ODF.

Some are concerned about only the appearance of a single document.
Others are concerned about automated document assemby from recyled
parts of documents in a variety of formats and their reformatting in a
single format. It would be a mistake to believe that the only relevant
market requirement is for pixel perfect. If you want to get ODF very
far into the enterprise market, you have to fulfill the requirements
of the data recylers in the enterprise.
